20#IAmNotADistraction

Via Twitter

In 2016, students at Buchanan High School in Clovis, CA protested a dress code they felt violates gender rights. Trustees didn't revise rules that specifically mentioned dresses and skirts were for girls, and wouldn't allow long hair or earrings for boys.

In response, students protested by wearing clothes that don't adhere to

gender standards for one day. But this isn't the only protest against such impositions. A similar protest in New Jersey resulted in the #IAmNotADistraction hashtag, according to CNN. Niv Miyasato is the father of one of the founders of this hashtag, and he's written a letter to his daughter's principal in support of the students' protest.
