Students protest ‘sexist’ dress code by wearing same outfits to school

Two high school students have taken the bold step of wearing the same style of outfits to class to highlight the school’s “sexist” dress code.

The results proved their hypothesis correct, exposing the uneven way their school dress code was enforced.

By wearing the same outfit, the students proved that girls had more dress codes than boys.

In the TikTok video which received 2.7 million likes, Drew Jarding (@drooscroo) and classmate Kenzie Crimmins (@kenziecrimmins) both wore cropped shirts to school.

Their intention was to highlight the sexism of the school’s dress code, and they anticipated that only Kenzie would be reprimanded for her attire.

“Dressing the same at school to show how sexist dress codes are,” Drew wrote in a text message on the video.

Both of the students’ tops reveal their midsections, except Drew’s top is much more revealing than Kenzie’s.

The video shows the two going about their school day sitting in class, walking down the halls and even recording themselves posing with another female student in a cropped top in the library, where Drew claims they were “in front like five teachers ” while doing this.

It seems that most of the school day goes by without any of the students being punished for violating the dress code.

However, towards the end of the day, only one of them faces consequences for his outfit.

Only Kenzie was reprimanded for violating the school dress code.

As Kenzie and Drew leave the school building for the day, Drew reveals that Kenzie has been scolded for her outfit.

“They wrote it!!!” Drew wrote in a text message as Kenzie shows off the pink ticket she received from school staff for violating the dress code.

Drew, however, did not receive a ticket or write.

“They really wrote @kenziecrimmins and said nothing to me,” Drew captioned the video.

Many TikTokers have agreed with Drew and Kenzie that their school’s dress code is sexist.

“Hers [Kenzie’s shirt] was literally a small piece and yours was an entire torso. That says it all,” one user commented.

“The way you had so much more skin showing that pissed me off,” another user shared.

A future teacher has revealed that she plans to stop punishing pupils for breaking the outdated and sexist dress code for her future pupils.

“As a future teacher I refuse to write a student off for something like this. Literally the only thing I would care about is if something poses a safety hazard and it’s more because I want just that my students be safe,” she wrote.

The students’ video drew attention to current dress codes in schools and the importance of updating them.
