There’s More to Her Than Meets the Eye

When school dress codes focus the majority of their attention on what girls should not be allowed to wear, it sends a message.

It breeds harassment. And misogyny. And a blame the victim culture.

Proud of my daughter for standing up for her rights. For her body. For her voice.

Take a few minutes and read her post. Words of support always loved:
