By deeming what is normal to be inappropriate, we turning women's bodies into a real thing of horror. I am praying that there was not a single person on that plane who would have mentally drawn a connection between a ten year old in leggings to a sexual object.

The fact that no comparable rules were set out for boys shows that they think it's up to girls to uphold their own honour and fend off advances.
There is something very alluring about a woman lying on a chaise in her bedroom, rolling a silk stocking on her leg. This is a far cry from our hectic mornings; the image of hopping around the bedroom trying to put on a pair of pantyhose...
