Mom's Facebook response to sexist school dress codes deserves a slow clap

We’ve celebrated so many students this past year who took a stand against their middle and high school’s sexist dress codes. We love these young women for rallying together and forcing their administrations to take a long hard look at their unfair policies. We also LOVE when these girl’s parents stand up for their daughters’ right to receive their education without being shamed about their wardrobe and/or their bodies.
