These Photos Show The Dangers Of Judging Girls By Their Clothes

March 20, 2015 1 min read

You're not defined by how short — or long — your skirt is - period. A lot goes into picking out an outfit in the morning. Whether it's freezing out, if you have anything to do after school, if you're seeing your crush — it all goes through your head. But often times, so does what others will think of you because of what you wear. Too short? You're a "slut." Too long? A "prude." It's totally unfair. Screen Shot 2015-03-20 at 4.24.27 PM Terre Des Femmes, a Swiss organization for gender equality, is fighting back against the unfair judgment girls face about how they dress with an ad campaign called Don't Measure A Woman's Worth By Her Clothes. Along with students at the Miami Ad School in Germany, artist Theresa Wlokka created three powerful images, depicting commonly sexualized areas (like a woman's chest and legs) along with "measuring sticks." Screen Shot 2015-03-20 at 4.24.57 PM It's a glaring reminder that if a girl wears a low-cut shirt, it doesn't mean she's promiscuous, and a knee-length skirt, doesn't mean she's prude or boring. The images also highlight a common justification heard in sexual assault cases — the insane idea that showing skin means the victim was "asking for it." Screen Shot 2015-03-20 at 4.24.40 PM No woman is defined by her shape, size, or what she chooses to wear. Each of us is more - much more than the sum total of these surface calculations - so don't let the number on the scale or what someone thinks about the length of your hem line get to you.
