Schools are supposed to create a safe and positive environment. The dress code has the opposite of that. The dress code does nothing but sexualize young girls, allows victim blaming, promotes rape culture, and tells girls that we should have to hide our body to “protect” ourselves. They are instilled by schools enforcing a standard of modesty contributing to the objectification of women.

My thighs, boobs, shoulders and stomach should not be sexualized in a place where i’m suppose to feel safe and comfortable at.

We are tired. We are tired of being painted as objects. We are tired of being pulled to the side of class and asked to change because our stomach is showing. Why can’t my shoulders, stomach or thighs be out? Why are they considered sexual ? 

How come we have to cover up to make a “distraction free area” for boys, instead of teaching them to respect us? Or instead of teaching boys that women aren’t sexual objects? By having a sexist dress code your allowing boys that they aren’t responsible for their actions and behaviors.

They believe they are protecting us from sexual harassment and assault.. When in reality it doesn’t matter what you wear. You can be wearing anything and it can still happen. Making us cover up is just allowing their behavior. Your allowing victim blaming.

The dress code not only can ruin mental health but can ruin young girls self esteem. It shows that our body is dangerous and sexual. The dress code is targeted at girls.

Everyone should be allowed to feel comfortable in what they wear at school.
