An invite for a sixth-grade class' pool party last Monday had one Indiana mom very upset.
Jennifer Smith's son brought home the invitation, which was for well-behaving students, but the stipulation required for female students is what kept her from letting her son attend.
"All girls must wear a non-white T-shirt over their swimsuit," the invite said. (Similarly, a "no Speedos" rule was issued for boys, according to Babble.)
A feminist, Smith told the Huffington Post she was "kind of enraged by that" statement. She felt the message was a method of body shaming and not the appropriate message to send to young girls about their bodies.
