"The Knesset dress code will not be enforced until a new one is penned in agreement with all those involved, Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein and a group of lawmakers decided Wednesday after a stormy meeting. The MKs objected to Knesset guards denying entry to 10 female parliamentary aides after alleging that their attire didn't meet the building's dress code. The women were among 40 Knesset staffers who deliberately wore short dresses and skirts to protest the delays their peers encountered while trying to entering the building over the past week on grounds that their hemlines were too high."
