This video from the USA says about itself:
Misty Kingma reports from the West Hollywood Slut Walk, one of several international events aimed at fighting back against the idea that women are to blame when they’re sexually assaulted.
After the ban in France of the burqa which is not really a burqa … after the witchhunts of women voluntarily wearing headscarves … after the witchhunts against women wearing miniskirts in Berlusconi’s Italy, by far Right politicians in Poland, in Chile and in the USA … by New York City police … (like already in the 1960s under the Greek military dictatorship) …
… now, another attack on women’s rights to dress like they want.
From the Independent in Britain:
School bans skirts in concern over rising hemlines
By Ben Kendall
Monday, 22 August 2011
A school concerned about rising hemlines has become the latest to ban girls from wearing skirts.
Northgate High School in Ipswich has removed skirts from its approved uniform list to stop students coming to lessons in “inappropriate attire”.
It is the third school in the town to introduce such a ban.
When nearby Kesgrave High School introduced a similar ban it provoked a mixed reaction.
Some parents complained it restricted freedom of choice while others welcomed it as a way of maintaining standards.
It comes after Tewkesbury School in Gloucestershire put forward a similar proposal in April after its headteacher said some wore skirts which were “almost like belts”.
Northgate headteacher David Hutton said that in recent years the ever-rising hemlines of some girls had led to staff sending students home to change.
Time for a big SlutWalk in Ipswich.
