There seems to be a lot of controversy about uniforms and the dress codes. I go to a private Catholic school so I understand what is happening around. Girls seem to get in trouble a lot more for the dress code than boys. I am not saying boys don’t get in trouble, but girls tend to get the shorter end of stick when it comes to what they wear whether their shorts are not to the knee, they wear yoga pants, or they wear a low cut shirt. They get in trouble because it “turns” the guy on research has said.
There is a documentary about a school called Woodford County High and shows the difference between the girls and boy when it comes to their dress code violations. Many girls were sent home and had to come back with different clothing. Sometimes the office would give the girls a different shirt that said “dress code violator.” Let alone girls are being body shamed for it saying they are going to become a slut later in life by wearing this now.
This is not fair. We need to stick up for other girls when we see it. We should be advocating for those and standing up for what is right in the school system. Teachers and principles have no right to treat boys and girls differently for their uniforms. Many parents do not know what is happening at these schools unless it is their child. We need to call this to action and step up for what is right.Tags: #bodyshaming#stopgirlsuniforms
