For years people have been shamed for what they wear or how they do things. Everyone lives life with rules, either given to them by their parents or maybe they just made them in order to protect themselves. The U.S runs by laws and regulations or rules that keep us all alive and safe, but how are these rules provided? A perfect example of this would be dress codes in schools. How am I supposed to have the freedom to express myself and my identity when I am being blocked by rules that in modern times become sexist? It seems that now days dress codes are mainly pointed towards women than they are to men. While interviewing some girls around Hunter High School I have noticed that a handful of them tend to get warnings every day they walk around. On the other hand, other girls have become more aware of the problem and have degraded their self-esteem for the likes of the teachers.
