Have you ever been dress coded for something unfair such as your shoulders or knees? Well you are not alone, millions of students go through this everyday and have for over 30 years.

”students are being punished for something they can’t control”.

students everyday are made to feel like their bodies are just sexual objects that you should be ashamed of having. This is seen to happen especially to the female students, they are constantly dress coded more often than their fellow male students.

An article to further prove my opinion

Even recently I wore pants with holes at my knees to my first full week at my new school. I was feeling great until, I got called out in the hall I was told that I couldn’t wear that and I was made to feel like it was distracting. So they told me, “You have three choices: One I call your mom, two you can go to iss, 3 I can let you put duct tape on your knees”. I was absolutely shocked because at my last school in Virginia that wasn’t even a rule. My mom who is single works two jobs I couldn’t call her because we were struggling with money, and I couldn’t go to iss I needed to be in my algebra class because I struggled with math and didn’t want to get behind. So I chose the duct tape it was embarrassing and it hurt, my knees weren’t a distraction until I had shiny duct tape on it right then and there is when I decided I needed to try to make a change THIS needs to change.
