New Delhi, Nov 10 :
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.
