Diversity of female fashion at GRHS

January 29, 2020

Dating back to 1969 with the landmark Tinker v. Des Moines case, in which students were prohibited from wearing black armbands in protest of the Vietnam War, dress codes are commonly enforced in high schools across the U.S. Today, many high schools, including Glen Rock, require that “Students who are not in compliance with the dress code will be asked to obtain appropriate clothing at once.”  However, many dress code regulations are directly aimed at women- an issue that has been rampant across the country since 2015, even resulting in the documentary “Shame: A Documentary on School Dress Code” by teenager Maggie Sunseri. Glen Rock’s own dress code mandates that “Students should not wear to school tops that expose a bare midriff, bare back, or have spaghetti straps,” “shirts, blouses and tops should not be immodest or revealing,” and “shorts should reach a fingertip length when the arm is fully extended along the side of the body.” Nevertheless, the girls of Glen Rock High School still find ways to express themselves through fashion, whether it be in accordance with modern trends or of their own design.
