As the weather is getting warmer, more girls are getting dress coded. The dress code unfairly targets girls and is antiquated. The dress code needs to change: 

  1. allow shoulder to be exposed
  2. allow moderate midriff
  3. allow shorts shorter than mid-thigh
  4. bring more education for all students on sexual harassment 
  5. bring equal treatment with boys and girls

Reasons why the school dress code is sexist:

Boys don’t get dress coded


Girls are expected to “cover up for boys”


“Unfairly targets girls by body shaming them and blaming them for promoting sexual harassment,” (Zhou).


In quote of the school handbook: “Clothing which exposes undergarments, bare midriffs, or otherwise revealing is inappropriate in a school setting.”  Although it doesn’t say, this is directed just at the girls. I have seen boys underwear multiple times and they don’t dress code them! But when a girls bra is showing, they get dress coded.


Girls are being told to cover up from wearing a tank top in 85 degree weather while boys have taken off their shirts in gym. -actual story that has recently happened
