This workshop will focus on the role sexist student dress codes play in perpetuating rape culture and
how to get healthy dress code into every Oregon school district. We will cover how they are harming
students and contributing to and perpetuating a rape culture where female bodies and females are
seen as objects and distractions to others, which contributes to violence against women and girls. We
will discuss what a model, non sexist student dress code includes and share samples. We will review
the process we were involved in to update the student dress code in 2016 across Portland Public
Schools, and talk about plans to take the model code to all school districts in Oregon.
