Girls, School Dress-Codes and Slut-Shaming

Another good one from Laura. Having attended the Pride Parade in Edmonton yesterday, I’m thinking about parallels between one loud and proud movement and another. I think the success of pride movements speaks for itself, although one ought not to be so excessively smug as to assume that regressive counter-movements are impossible in both cases, and that some less happy medium might not yet come into being. Progress is often an obscuring force — it has the power to fool us into believing that it’s opposite is impossible, and, especially, to hide from view the progression of other forms of oppression more enduring and more difficult to tackle.

If you can work what I’m only hinting at, the veil of social progress hasn’t yet covered your eyes. Food for thought.
