The dress code policies of LPS are absolutely ridiculous and many rules are targeted at girls.
In middle school, boys were told that the only major thing they couldn’t wear and needed to worry about was clothing with alcohol/drug references or sexual references. Girls had a giant list that often took away from half their closet, and many of them were unnecessary. Schools all across the country veto any stomach, too much shoulder, or even too much chest showing. Girls are being dress coded for their shorts being too short for the schools minimum. At Scott Middle School, they held up a teacher ID to measure the shorts while they were still on the student. They embarrassed them at recess by calling them out in front of their friends. This is teaching girls at a young age that all these clothing and body areas are considered bad and distracting, when they should be learning self love and that they are accepted. Girls are embarrassed and asked to go to the office, which is known as a place to go when you’re in trouble, when wearing clothing that is too distracting to the district and teachers. This toxicity shouldn’t be happening in schools. Girls need to stand up for what’s right because this has gone on far too long. Every girl either has been or knows a girl who’s been dress coded.

From September 14th to 18th, girls in all schools should protest these absurd laws targeting women. Wear something you’ve been dress coded for. Express yourself. No matter which school, which grade, please participate. We want as many people as possible so that schools won’t even have the time to dress code everyone who walks in that door. Time to stop targeting women for “distracting” and teaching them there’s a consequence for expressing themselves/wearing what they want to wear.
