Students Protest Dress Code by Going Naked
And here I thought FEMEN had turned me off of naked protests forever. After Kaposvar University in Hungary decided to ban mini-skirts and other immodest clothing like flip-flops, ten students and at least one instructor decided to protest by having class while naked.
The protest and accompanying video were a reaction to the university’s insistence that all male students should wear dark suits and shoes while all female students should wear a jacket, blouse and trousers or long skirts, with some allowances made for lighter clothes during warmer weather. According to one student, the classroom was so warm they just had to strip down to just their underwear – or less for some – and have class behind some strategically placed textbooks.
Whether the protest will effect the policy remains to be seen, but the students are planning another protest involving towels and flip flops on October 7th.
