There is no denying the fact that girls are victims of gender inequality at the present time too and they have to follow the list of Dos & Don’ts while there are no restrictions on the boys. The surprising fact is that this statement is valid for the western culture also which boasts of giving equal choices to both the genders.
Yes, you read it right! Summer, a student of Hickory Ridge High School, North Carolina, was suspended from school as she went to school wearing this top:
Summer is a brilliant honour student having a score of 4.4 GPA. She was having her meals in cafeteria when the Principal came to her and asked the girl to cover herself. He came again but this time, he had an armed guard with him and he asked Summer to change her top completely.
This is what happened in the words of Summer:
“The security guard was within five feet of me. He had his hand on his gun. The principal said, ‘I’m gonna give you an ultimatum. We have tried to call your mother. You either come with me to the control room to change your shirt or we will arrest you.’”
So she was about to get arrested and that too, for a top which showed her shoulder. What’s more, she won’t be able to attend her own graduation now, as she has been suspended from school for 15 days.
@curlyaliyah, a Twitter user, took to the micro-blogging site to tell people about this weird act of the school and since then, support has been pouring in for Summer.
The school is not just slammed on the social media but people are also sending emails to the Principal so that the suspension can be rebuked.
