According to the reports,
The first thing that the professor said to me was “is that really what you would wear?”
She, a white woman, continued: “Your shorts are too short”.
The professor proceeded to tell me, in front of my whole class, that I was inviting the male gaze away from the content of my presentation and onto my body.
She said I was making a statement by wearing my outfit. I told her that I sure as hell wouldn’t change my statement to make her or anyone else feel more comfortable.
On this, Professor Rebekah Maggor said,
I do not tell my students what to wear, nor do I define for them what constitutes appropriate dress.
I ask them to reflect on themselves and make their own decisions.
Well, she received both positive and negative comments on her protest on Facebook for fighting oppressive beliefs. Some called it fearless act while some named it childish act.
