Women should not be punished for men not being able to controll themselves. Especially at a school where students should feel safe. Women of color should not be discriminated against and told what to do with their hair while other people get to do whatever they want with it.

I'm signing because many Filipino women experience Sexual Harassment, and because I believe students shouldn’t be sexualize because of their clothing and because girls shouldn’t be taught to “cover up” because men can’t control themselves. It includes a range of actions from verbal violations to sexual abuse or assault.

In every school many students experience abuse because of the uncomfortable clothing they have in their school which often leads to sexual abuse, we cannot deny that not only their clothing affects them but also their minds, because it does not. they want it to be the cause of their dreaded abuse of men.

There are times when a person who experiences sexual abuse can also lead to depression and may even commit suicide, so this is a good topic that should be given the focus and attention of those in higher positions in school.

Women suffer from some debilitating stress reaction, including anxiety, depression, headaches, sleep disorders, weight loss or gain, nausea, lowered self-esteem and sexual dysfunction.

Students should not have their education disrupted just because their belly button or shoulder is showing. We are allowed to wear what we want, We are responsible enough to know what is respectful and what isn’t.

This is crazy, my school had recently changed it dress code and one of my teachers (the art one, we Stan) had out right said to the class that the old dress code was sexist! This really needs to stop!!

I'm signing this petition because, we have the right to wear what we are comfortable wearing. We are not to adjust for those sexually oriented people who sexualizes any form and dress codes. They are the ones who need to arrange them selves.

Hi Sunny, this is the Ruth Project (ruthproj.org)! We are a global gender equity advocacy organization fighting to rectify gender injustice by empowering and training our members to change inequitable policies. Our initiatives include everything from school dress code reform to sexual harassment program reforms.

We are reaching out to you because we saw the petition for dress code reform you made and would love to help you build that into a strong dress code reform initiative. We’ve reformed dress code policies and enforcement in several school districts (Seminole County Public Schools, Florida, and Martin County Public Schools, Florida) and now mentor students across the United States and Canada to build their strong Ruth Project dress code reform initiatives.

You have the potential to make a difference in your school by resolving issues of gender discrimination in your dress code policy, and we want to help you! If you are interested please email info@ruthproj.org. I’ve attached our sign-up form and resources for dress code reform. We hope to work with you!

I hope you have a great day!

Dresscode is the dumbest thing ever made and most of the dresscodes were made in the 1950s
