SC removes ban on women as Bollywood make-up artists

IANS 10 Nov 2014, 16:46:30 PM IST

New Delhi: The Supreme Court Monday struck down the provision that prohibited women make-up artists and hairdressers from becoming the members of professional associations. This provision prohibited women from becoming make-up artists and hairdressers in the film industry.

The apex court bench headed by Justice Dipak Misra also struck down the provision of the make-up artists and hairdressers association that mandated a person to be a resident of a particular place for five years to entitle him/her to become member of the association.

The court order came on a petition by woman make-up artist Charu Khurana who had challenged these two clauses of the association as being discriminatory to women.
