As students in Pleasanton Unified School District (PUSD), we can see the impacts of sexist dress codes every day at school. The dress codes put in place by the school promote a toxic learning environment for all students, regardless of gender. The dress code targets the manner in which feminine students dress by targeting the types of tops that can be found in the “women’s” section of a clothing store. PUSD’s current dress code prevents women from wearing “halter tops, strapless, off-the-shoulder or low-cut (front or side) tops, bare midriffs.”

When feminine students are dress-coded, they are pulled out of class while their male peers continue learning. This dress code inequitably takes learning time from feminine students, when education should and must be prioritized. PUSD’s dress code is gender discriminatory, and we students will not stand for it.

By signing this petition, you are voicing your support for the reform of PUSD’s inequitable dress code.
