Dress Coded: Black Girls, Bodies, and Bias in D.C. Schools

In DRESS CODED: Black Girls, Bodies, and Bias in D.C. Schools, the National Women’s Law Center and 21 Black girls who live and learn in D.C. expose common problems with D.C. dress codes, discusses their impact on students, and propose better policies. The good news is that our co-authors have great ideas about how schools can do better. In the report, readers will find a checklist for schools and policy recommendations for school leaders, district leaders, and local government.
