Dress code has become a controversial issue in high schools across the United States. Many people believe that dress code was mainly created to target female students rather than male.While guys have the consent to parade around in a gym class shirtless,girls are sent home because the slit in their skirt may be an inch too high.

A high school student of Etobicoke School of the Arts took action towards her school’s sexist dress code. The 18 year old protested by making a literal fashion statement called “#CropTopDay”. Promoting her hashtag all over social media, she encouraged female students that attended her school to join the protest and wear a crop top to school on a planned day. Alexia herself wore a crop top that read “Stand in solidarity”,backing up her belief that females should not be restricted on what they wear based on their gender.

Do you believe that dress code at McEachern is doubled standard, or do you think it serves a greater purpose?
