Teen starts 'Pass The Skirt' movement to fight discriminatory dress codes

The hashtag #PasstheSkirt is now trending all across the country as high school students fight for equality in their school dress codes. On January 23rd, Clara Mitchell, a high school senior in Arkansas, was called into the office for violating the dress code just minutes before she was to present a science project. The next day, her fellow student Laura Orsi wore the same skirt to school that Clara was challenged about the prior day, without the same penalty, to show the biased nature of many school dress codes. After Clara and Laura’s story went viral, girls all across the country started using #PasstheSkirt to hold administrators accountable for creating a more established dress code that is enforced consistently across the school, regardless of gender, race, or ethnicity. Check out Laura’s original post about the #PasstheSkirt campaign at A high school student was inspired to act after her friend received a dress code violation that she deemed unfair.

Why did women in Congress wear white for Trump’s State of the Union address?

You might have noticed a sea of white pantsuits and dresses at Tuesday night’s State of the Union address. For over a century now, women have worn white to generate media attention to the suffragist movement, beginning in the early 20th century when women were first granted the right to vote. The nod to the suffragists at Tuesday night’s Presidential address sparked a great deal of photo coverage and even a congratulatory comment from Mr. President himself, noting that there are more women in Congress now than ever before. Read the Washington Post’s full history of suffragists donning white throughout time and check out the photographs from last night’s event at The color symbolizes female empowerment and evokes an important movement in American history.

Photographing the Women of the 116th Congress

In 1917, the first woman was elected to Congress. Earlier this month, and 102 years later, 131 women were sworn into Congress, making it the greatest number of women in Congress that the United States has ever seen. In her series “Redefining Representation”, photojournalist Elizabeth Herman photographed these women, ignoring the traditional rules of political portraits. Her goal was to portray these powerful women as their unique selves, while being cognizant of how women are frequently diminished in photographs. Check out The New York Times’ interview with Hermann and witness the compelling photos for yourself.®ion=stream&module=stream_unit&version=latest&contentPlacement=12&pgtype=collection For most of American history, political power has looked white and male.
