American Apparel founder and CEO Dov Charney, was ousted from his very own company spread like wildfire this morning. And it was predictably greeted with major glee among most of my feminist friends, who've had enough with this guy's gag-inducing sexist marketing campaigns, as well as his own personal conduct with employees. I still have no intention of ever purchasing anything from them in the future. Ousting Dov Charney may have been the right decision to make, American Apparel executive board members, but that's not why you finally got rid of him.
I remember when I was 11 years old, the boys were constantly lifting our uniform skirts to see our underwear. The boys were rarely punished and the girls took action by wearing their gym shorts under their skirts. It was a part of school life and no one really paid attention. How do we help our girls?
