Uttarakhand Chief Minister Tirath Singh Rawat recently stirred controversy for saying that women are “running towards nudity” by wearing ripped jeans. He further stated that they are setting a “bad example” in society.
Well, not just women, a huge section of people online was irked by his illogical statement. And soon women started posting pictures in their distressed denim to prove that clothes don’t define a person’s character.
Soon, #RippedJeansTwitter started trending online.
#RippedJeansTwitter is another symbolic Women’s Day on Twitter. And for good. Every time idiots in power want to marginalise you, drown them with such a symbolic wave.

In solidarity with the woman with ripped jeans who was judged by a misogynist.

Ripped Jeans aur Kitab.
The country’s ‘sanskriti’ & ‘sanskaar’ are impacted by men who sit and judge women and their choices. Soch badlo Mukhyamantri Rawat ji, tabhi desh badlega. #RippedJeansTwitter pic.twitter.com/qYXcN88fY6

What a sassy way to shut down those with a regressive mindset!
