Stop the Sexist Dress Code
The dress code at Alice Deal is extremely sexist, and discriminatory towards females. It labels girls as distractions to boys' education and promotes rape culture. In 1791, the first amendment to the U.S. constitution was passed, protecting freedom of speech to ensure that all people could express themselves in any way they wanted to. For some girls, clothing is an outlet that allows for creative freedom. Girls feel objectified, and like they are distractions, which isn't true. By enforcing this dress code, Alice Deal Middle School is being regressive. Also, it is very difficult to keep up. Why should girls spend their time, money, and energy on finding clothes that fit the misogynistic dress code?
