Change the sexist school dress code

This petition had 353 supporters

School dress codes perpetuate rape culture and oppressive objectification towards women. Recently, a Palo Verde High School dean went on the morning announcements and said "We don't want to show too much skin ladies, we want the boys to respect us." Pretty much saying that boys can only respect us if we cover up. This is a dean at a highschool who holds so much influence over the student, and is encouraging boys to disrespect women if they show skin, as if they were scandalous. Girls and boys should not be shamed for their bodies, and what we wear shouldn't affect how much respect we receive. We are 13-18 year old students, if you are sexualizing us, then YOU are the problem.
