This idea can be seen throughout the book but becomes very apparent at and after the assault on Marjane’s mom. She recalls that “They insulted me. They said that women like me should be pushed up against a wall and f***ed. And then thrown into the garbage, and if I didn’t want that to happen, I should wear the veil” (74, 4-5). This demonstrates how fundamentalist men thought that since she wasn’t wearing a veil she was dressing “provocatively”, and therefore she should be used as an item and afterward would be useless.
Public school dress code restrictions should be reduced for girls. Girls have very strict dress codes to abide by which makes them feel sexualized.

Sexist dress codes, shaming young girls for our country’s high teen pregnancy rate, sexual harassment, domestic violence are just a few ways how women are treated unjustly in our society. Dress Codes Dress codes in school systems are one of the largest one-sided and unjust issues in today’s society. Maureen Downey explains how “schools waste a lot of time enforcing dress codes, most of which focus on preventing young girls from distracting young boys” (2014. para 1). It is beyond unfair that girls are forbidden from wearing certain clothing articles to ensure that the immature boys next to them focus on their work instead of
However, she claims that because class was invisible in the girls ‘social life, the school blame their sexualized style, their rejection of prep’s values and their lack of school success for their class differences. Most important, Bettie claims that the lack of cultural capital also affected the working class girls because it intersected with their race and gender to influence their class futures. For example, Bettie argues how upwardly mobile girls had to performed whiteness and the school sanctioned femininity just to possessed the prep’s dominant cultural capital. At the same time, girls who didn’t possessed cultural capital were victims of generalizations and stereotypes that affected their class outcomes. As a result, many of the working class girls were destined to follow rough paths or the same low paying jobs as their

From the start of the play Mary felt mistreated by her teachers. When she voiced her displeasure, she was often confronted with questions and ended up getting punished. Mary would often exaggerate her sorrows and faked illnesses to get out of punishments. Fearing that she would have to return to school, Mary persuaded her grandmother to let her stay by suggesting Karen and Martha are lesbians. Mary’s biggest challenge was that she needed liability from other students saying that they witnessed their teachers being sexually involved with one another.
Dress codes also make people uncomfortable, which means they are attentive. Dress codes are a necessary aspect of school, and they help teenagers to focus more in school. Rules for how to dress prevent boys and girls from being distracted by fancy clothing. Often times, girls tend to focus on what other girls are wearing and how other girls may look super attractive or trashy. In addition, boys look at girls who are dressed in very releasing clothing.
As shown in this paper, school dress codes affect girls negatively by restricting expression, diminishing confidence, and establishing platform for sexism in later years. In regards to restricting self expression, school dress codes take away girls’ differences, prevent personal opinions from being shared, and deny them their constitutional right of freedom of speech. In closing, on the point of diminishing confidence, school dress codes diminish girls’ confidence by putting them through embarrassment, body shaming them, and teaching them that their appearance is more important than their education. Lastly, in regards to establishing a platform for sexism in later years, school dress codes impact girls by teaching boys that women are objects, valuing the education of the male students over the girls, and targeting the girls more with these dress code
The parents and authorities during the 1950’s were that of the “rebellious boppers.” The adult fear that the “boppers” had an wrote set of morals which encourage sin. According to two teenage girls, to become a “bopper” girls and guys had to dress a certain way and only listen to “bebop” music. Other requirements to be a “bopper” included a statement to disobey parents and authority while stealing and vandalising. The final stage of becoming a “bopper” was to racial mix whites and blacks; white girls were to date black boys and agree to an act of sexual immorality. The first girl source also claims that “bopper” progress is measured by number of immoral acts committed by a member.
For example, Malala Yousafzai was wanted as a criminal for trying to give girls an education. Hatred for others results in hate groups, like the Klu Klux Klan. Prejudice creates a barrier between people, which results in missed opportunities to make new
According to Sadler and Zittelmen,” they documented the public silence of girls from school through graduate school, (119). They claimed that girls are second class behind men because they”, subjected to a terrifying curriculum of sexist school lessons that ranges all way from subtle forms of dismissal and exclusion to blatant act of harassment and abuse,”(Larkin 49). Girls all around are seen intelligent so when boy are aware of it, they use that power of intimidation against them. That attitude is then use ward sexual harassment that girl because they to believe women should be treated as sex objects and second class citizens. Their behaviors are not seen harmful because many might not see it as it is but see it more as a form of abuse of power.
And if a boy or boys are so distracted by a girls shoulder or legs, he should be the one to be punished. Instead of teaching girls to cover themselves up, teach boys that girls are not sexual beings. If girls can study through menstruation, then boys should be able to study with a girl showing her shoulders.
In “Tottenville High School in Staten Island, New York, handed out 200 detention slips for dress code violations… about 90% of which went to female students(Dockterman 1)”. Why would only women be the ones being caught for violating the terms of the dress code? It is not because they are the only ones but, because they have been taught as a young child, that they must be proper, and anything less than that is inappropriate. (Dockterman 1) also states that “rules for girls are blatantly sexual in nature, cover your skin, but are not for boys.” (Dockterman 1) also points out that this is in violation of “Title lX, the law that forbids gender discrimination in schools.” This is something that I can coincide with very much, as the only people you hear about in school being called to their deans for dress code violations are
I disagree with the dress code policy at hampton city schools, kids should be able to wear what they want.clothes express who you are in your own style. You should be able to learn without being uncomfortable.

As a matter of fact, students should be able to wear head wear.
A lot of the boys wrote they’d rather be dead. But the girls wrote about power and freedom. This really shocked me.

This shows that even at a young age, little girls know that they’re inferior and lesser than their male
