Angela spoke with Greg Brady on Global News Radio 640 Toronto about an Ottawa Catholic high school’s dress code enforcement. On May 12th, staff at Béatrice-Desloges high school in Orléans singled out female students by requiring them to demonstrate their shorts and skirts were of an “appropriate length” and adhered to the school’s dress code. Some students were asked to bend over and had their garments measured to ensure they met the requirements. Students protested the policy the following day.
Angela stated that the real issues are around assault, sexual assault, and human rights violations, and that the fact scenario read more as the “plot of a PornHub video” rather than a school dress code policy. She also raised concerns about who gave the instructions about the dress code policy and how it should be enforced.
