Link’n’Blogs – 7.1.16 – Hey, Schools – Stop Body Shaming Girls


Related Content from And There Came A Day


I loved Lincoln Logs when I was a kid. Though I never entertained the idea that I would be a designer, engineer or architect, something about putting together these wooden and plastic pieces was simply simple fun. Connecting to ideas through the blogosphere seems similar to this pursuit, hence the title of this weekly post. Each Friday, I intend to post something interesting I’ve read out there on the internets. Hopefully others will find these posts as thought provoking as I have.

I was Dean of Students at an all girls school many years ago, the first Dean of Students as a matter of fact. One of the responsibilities that fell under me was dress code. Before the school opened, I worked with a committed and talented group of people to design a dress code that the kids could follow. #MiserableFailure. I have, ever since, been highly interested in dress codes, specifically in how they apply to girls. Andrea Romano had a great take on this issue in Mashable last week.
