Taiwan nurses petition to restrict nurse uniforms
The Taiwan Nurses’ Association has sent letters to news and health bureaus, asking the organizations to protect the integrity of the nursing uniform. According to Global Times, the letter urges “them [to] clamp down on actresses or workers in other industries dressing in nurses’ uniforms.”
The group took action after an actress appeared on TV and performed a suggestive dance clad in a sexy nurse’s uniform.
Do you think it’s time for similar action here in the West? Should Mariah Carey be allowed to wriggle in a nurse costume, or should nurse uniforms be restricted to nurses only?
