Dangers of Judging Women by Their Clothes

You’re not defined by how short — or long — your skirt is.

A lot goes into picking out an outfit in the morning. If it’s freezing out, if you have anything to do after work, if you’re seeing someone you want to impress — it all goes through your head.

But often so does what others will think of you because of what you wear.

Too short? You’re a “slut.” Too long? A “prude.” It’s freakout-inducing.

Terre Des Femmes, a Swiss organization for gender equality, is fighting back against the unfair judgment women and girls face about how they dress with an ad campaign called “Don’t Measure a Woman’s Worth by Her Clothes.”

Along with students at the Miami Ad School in Germany, artist Theresa Wlokka created three powerful images, depicting commonly sexualized areas (like a woman’s chest and legs) alongside “measuring sticks.”

It’s a glaring reminder that if a girl wears a low-cut shirt, it doesn’t mean she’s promiscuous, and a knee-length skirt doesn’t mean she’s prude or boring.

The images also highlight a common justification heard in sexual assault cases — the insane idea that showing skin means the victim was “asking for it.”

Note: “Asking for it” opinion should be taken seriously. That is why collecting data on men and women opinion on how women and men dress is of great importance. Better be on the safe side if you have the proper knowledge of how people perceive the way you dress.
