It is heartbreaking how even in the 21st century, women are judged and shamed for the clothes that they chose to wear. Recently, The First Lady Of the US, Dr.Jill Biden, wife of President Biden, came off of Air Force One wearing a black skirt and black tights that had a design on them. Calling her tights – “fishnet stockings,” which they weren’t, many conservative men came forward to shame the first lady for wearing something they didn’t like.
From reminding of her age and telling her clothes inappropriate, many men thought it was their birthright to school Dr. Jill on what a woman in 70s can/ can’t wear:
Many progressive minds came forward in Jill’s support and told people to mind their own business
Throughout history, women have been subject to unfair rules and regulations. For centuries, men have been controlling what women wear, what they can do, and many more aspects of their life. From sending women to jail for wearing jeans to women in Iran being beaten by a stranger for wearing loose hijab, to a rapist being acquitted for raping a teenager just because the victim was wearing jeans; shows how for centuries men are obsessed with the ways how women cover themselves.
As we stand with Dr. Jill, we want to send across a loud and clear message to society: “WOMEN CAN WEAR WHAT THEY WANT. IT’S THEIR BUSINESS, NOT YOURS!” Don’t forget to let us know your thoughts!
