If you liked the video, you might also want to read the original post on the issue that inspired it. (And really, if you're not reading Phd in Parenting already you should definitely check it out, even if you're not a parent, for great coverage of issues relating to women's and children's health, feminism, and activism against sucky companies like Nestle.):
But is refusing to cover up indiscreet? I don’t think so. There is a wide range of opinions on what constitutes good judgment with regards to how women dress themselves and how much they should or should not cover up. Any time a woman is told to cover up or told to undress, I see that as an attack on her person. Telling women to cover up and telling women to strip down are frequently used tactics for oppressing women. There are both practical and philosophical reasons why no one other than the woman herself should decide how covered or uncovered to be. It is easier for onlookers to avert their eyes than it is for a woman to dress in a way that makes her feel uncomfortable.
When it comes to dressing, I think women should be able to choose from a wide variety of options. It should be up to them to decide how they feel comfortable. [Phd in Parenting]
So what does everyone think? Do you agree with the video that covering up is a feminist issue?
