Who among you have felt restricted when it comes to adhering to dress code policies? Raise your hands!
It could've been back in high school when you couldn't accessorize much or just have fun with your uniforms. It could've been in those school fairs when you had to cover up in civilian wear because boys would be around. It could've been back in college even, with reasons ranging from "you're just there to study, so why wear something revealing?" or "you're distracting the other students with how you look," or "we don't want you promoting sexual harassment."
It's probably safe to say that we all have an idea how ridiculous and restricting dress codes are. That said, here's a video which shows just how dress codes can affect students.
We're not saying dress codes on their own are evil. But on the grounds that it's the women who have to protect themselves because "boys will be boys" (and they can't control their raging hormones, hence can get away with harassing girls)? That just sounds crazy, not to mention insulting.
What do you think?
