Authorities in Indonesia plan to ban virginity tests for female civil servants following widespread condemnation that the country’s police force still uses the “degrading” practice to vet candidates.

Home Affairs Minister Tjahjo Kumolo said he is working to put an end to the tests for women seeking to enroll in the Institute of Public Administration, a college for civil service and regional administrators in training.

Despite the push to ban the testing practice for civil service hopefuls, the police force has not changed its policy....

Human Rights Watch has also documented the practice of virginity tests for policewomen in other countries including Egypt, India and Afghanistan.
