COURT in INDIA SAYS WOMAN ALLOWED to TEND BAR
WILL BE ALLOWED to
work as bartenders in New Delhi, India's Supreme Court
ruled, upholding a lower court's decision that an earlier
ban was unconstitutional. The city authorities had wanted
the ban reinstated, arguing that women needed to be
protected from the bad behavior of drunken New Delhi men.
The Delhi High Court had scrapped the ban in 2OO6, saying it
went against the Constitution's principles in equality.
