Girls Wear Pants, Too
I prefer pants.
That’s exactly what I tried to explain to the principal of my high school, Oakridge High, when I went to him with my concerns about the dress code for our graduation last month. Yes, I am a young woman. And yes, for as long as anyone can recall, the tradition at our high school graduation ceremonies has called for girls to wear white or cream-colored dress with white formal shoes while boys wear dress pants and a shirt (and a tie, if they so choose).
