Five women resigned from their positions at the satellite television channel  Al-Jazeera due to a dispute with management over dress code and other issues, AFP reported on Sunday.

The women had petitioned management over comments by a senior Al-Jazeera official that the women were not conservative enough in their dress choices, although an unnamed journalist at Al-Jazeera claimed that the conflict in question ran deeper than just issues with the dress code.
