Refuse. Resist. Rebuild.
Hundreds of people are going at it hammer and tongs about what women should wear. They are very concerned about modesty, and obedience to authority.
Surprisingly, they are not in Saudi Arabia, or scriptwriters for Mad Men.
They are educators exclaiming the inescapable virtues of the polo shirt. In Australia. In 2015.
You’d think that adults who can be trusted with other people’s children might also be considered capable of working out what to wear without help. But apparently, you would be wrong.
I confess to being a tiny bit shocked that the word ‘modesty’ is getting such a run. Whatever else we are teaching as preparation to work in ECE, it is clearly not Feminism 101.
