Publication: Race, Class, and Gender in Uniform and Dress Code Policies
Two PhD candidates in Tulane's City, Culture and Community program have published in the Affilia journal. Authored by Hannah Knipp and Rae Stevenson, the article "'A Powerful Visual Statement': Race, Class, and Gender in Uniform and Dress Code Policies in New Orleans Public Charter Schools," this study draws on intersectionality and the concept of misogynoir to dissect what school policies communicate about race, class, and gender. They also indicate that school social workers are uniquely positioned to advocate for more equitable dress code and uniform policies.
