It shouldn't be news to anyone that dress codes are misogynistic and blame young girls for... having bodies? Yep that's basically all a dress code is.
Especially when you consider that a lot of the "rationale" for having a dress code is so that boys do not get distracted from their learning. This prioritizes boys' education over girls' which is obviously super messed up.
Even WORSE is when they claim it is so that male teachers don't get distracted. How about not employing creepy men to work in schools?
Anyway, this TikToker made a super good TikTok that explains the problem with dress codes super well.
The transcript is below this if you would prefer to read it too!
The video explains how dress codes feed into rape culture and normalise it for girls at such a young age.
OR girls that wear shorter clothes when it is hot! Especially when so many schools are inadequately airconditioned.
The blame is placed squarely on the girls.
For example, daddy issues (blaming the girls, rather than the men who failed them).
*Unless you're a man trying to tell a woman what to do with her body in that case: shut up!
