Students and parents have begun pushing back against dress codes that disproportionately penalize and objectify women.
In schools, female students have gotten in trouble for not wearing a bra or for wearing a bra when the straps are showing.

Being “dress coded,” or told to cover up and dress less “provocatively,” happens in life outside of schools, too. Here are six times women were dress coded in real life.
