Rosea Lake, a first-year university student at Capilano University in Vancouver, has created a powerful image showing how the world judges -women based on their skirt length. ——- by Lisa Wade, PhD, What I like about the image is the way it very clearly illustrates two things. First, it reveals that doing femininity doesn’t mean obeying a single, simple rule. Instead, it’s about occupying and traveling within a certain space. In this case, usually between “proper” and “flirty.” Women have to constantly figure out where in that space they’re supposed to be. Too flirty at work mean’s you won’t be taken seriously; too proper at the bar and you’re invisible. Under the right circumstances (e.g., Halloween, a funeral), you can do “cheeky” or “old fashioned.” The second thing I like about this image is the way it shows that there is a significant price to pay for getting it wrong. It’s not just a faux pas. Once you’re “‘asking for it,” you could be a target. And, once you’re reached “prudish,” you’ve become socially irrelevant. Both violence and social marginalization are serious consequences. And, of course, all women are going to get it wrong sometimes because the boundaries are moving targets and in the eye of the beholder. What’s cheeky in one setting or to one person is flirty in or to another. So women constantly risk getting it wrong, or getting it wrong to someone. So the consequences are always floating out there, worrying us, and sending us to the mall. Indeed, this is why women have so many clothes! We need an all-purpose black skirt that does old fashioned, another one to do proper, and a third to do flirty… at the very least… and all in casual, business, and formal. And we need heels to go with each (stilettos = provocative, high heels = flirty, low heels = proper, etc, plus we need flats for the picnics and beach weddings etc). And we need pants that are hemmed to the right length for each of these pairs of shoes. You can’t wear black shoes with navy pants, so you’ll need to double up on all these things if you want any variety in your wardrobe. I could go on, but you get the picture. Women’s closets are often mocked as a form of self-indulgence, shop-a-holicism, or narcissism. But this isn’t fair. Instead, if a woman is class-privileged enough, they reflect an (often unarticulated) understanding of just how complicated the rules are. If they’re not class-privileged enough, they can’t follow the rules and are punished for being, for example, “trashy” or “unprofessional.” It’s a difficult job that we impose on women and we’re all too often damned-if-we-do and damned-if-we-don’t.
It's not funny, but powerful. I for one think people are right for judging women based on skirt length. A classy woman wouldn't be wearing clothing at the "asking for it" length!

This is one of the rarest books in the world and only four copies exist now. The book was written in 1460 in one of the most mysterious European courts of Medieval, as the court of Dukes of Burgundy ~ "Invectives Against the Sect of Waldensians". This is a hunter's guide: how to recognize, capture and kill a witch or a warlock.

The witch-hunter's guide: "Invectives Against the Sect of Waldensians," written in 1460 and discovered in UAlberta's Bruce Peel Special Collections Library, is one of only four copies of the manuscript in the world. (Photo: Richard Siemens) (Edmonton) The idea of witches buzzing about on brooms may be a Halloween staple today, but a rare medieval manuscript recently discovered by University of Alberta researchers is a reminder that it has a dark and disturbing past.
