Dress Code: A Major Problem
By: McKenna Miller, Halle Dowden-Parott, and Jimmy Legg
Why is Dress Code a Problem?
When you tell a girl to go change into her P.E or Athletics shirt because her bra strap is showing, you're telling her a boy's education is more important than hers. When a girl wears a tank top and you tell her to cover up, you're telling her to hide herself and make herself smaller. If you tell her if she is showing too much of her skin, you're telling her that she is "asking" for it.
Our dress code bans clothing that shows too much skin, and not mostly for boys, but for girls. This only perpetuates the myth that women are raped or sexually harassed because of what they wear. Our solution? Create a new dress code that allows girls to dress how they want. This would be preparing others, such as boys, for the real world.
