Should we shame and blame girls for the way they dress?
It seems people are always telling young girls how to dress. I recently heard a Mom tell her teenage daughter that her choice of clothing on Instagram might get her ‘in trouble’.
As a mom – sure it’s got to be hard to watch your daughter wearing a skimpy outfit and it’s hard to fight the mama bear protective instinct. But should we really be telling girls that their choice of clothing could be responsible for any unwanted physical attention? Are we saying that their choice of clothing is to blame over someone else’s inability to control themselves and their actions?
It’s a tough call but we’re having a good chat about shaming and blaming girls for the way they dress. We’d love to know what you think.
