Dress code

student opinion

By Ariana Torresdey

  Why can’t we wear crop tops? Who are we offending? What can we wear without being seen as objects? My intentions aren’t bad, yet my reason is being justified by the way we as (women) dress. How is that okay? The fact a man can wear a muscle shirt to school, but women can’t wear anything showing collarbone, shoulders, or skin in general. People view certain women’s clothes as expressional art, and that is our intention. We want to showcase our beauty through something we see as beautiful. We don’t want to be seen as an object or someone’s easy target. The dress code is extreme and makes us feel like we are less.

Do you believe in women’s rights?

By Ariana Torresdey

Women’s rights are the rights and entitlements claimed
for women and girls worldwide. They formed the basis
for the women’s rights movement in the 19th century
and, the feminist movements during the 20th and 21st
centuries. In some countries, these rights are
institutionalized or supported by law, local custom, and
behavior, whereas in others, they are commonly
associated with notions of women’s rights that include
bodily integrity, autonomy, sexual violence, voting,
family law, to work, equal pay, reproductive rights, own
property, and education.
