Most importantly, it is a place of worship. That is why Jehovah's Witnesses try put on their most appropriate clothing for their meetings, as it is a form of worship, and so deserves a respectful tone. This does not mean that everyone must wear the same thing and the same color and the same style, but it does require some common sense. If you are not sure, it can be a good idea to get a cue from what sort of clothing your local Witness friends wear to meetings, and you will be in the right direction.

Does The Bible have anything to say about this?

Yes, in fact it does. Referring to how people should worship...

(1 Timothy 2:9, 10) ". . .I desire the women to adorn themselves in well-arranged dress, with modesty and soundness of mind, not with styles of hair braiding and gold or pearls or very expensive garb, 10 but in the way that befits women professing to reverence God, namely, through good works."

This is in no way too restricting or overbearing, and it reflects the way that each person is trusted to use their free will and make wise choice about clothing. The same principle would without a doubt apply equally to men.

Do Jehovah's Witness women have to cover their legs?

JW's are not given a strict dress code. We are encouraged to dress modestly. That includes both men and women. Each must use their own conscience to decide what is appropriate. My wife, for example, prefers her dresses to come to aproximately knee height when sitting. She feels that this gives her a good balance between comfort on hot days and modesty.--------------------------Modestly as befitting true Christians then yes of course. But as a funny sidenote our sisters are not permitted to cover their legs with trousers whilst at the Kingdom Hall or Conventions. Skirts and dresses only.
