In July 2017, The Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) presented another clothing standard restricting diving neck areas, short skirts, stockings and racerback tops without a neckline.
Some say these new rules empower "slut-shaming," including genuine players like Paige Spiranac. Paige is a 23-year-old golfer and web-based social networking sensation who's gunning for a shot in the LPGA circuit. Nonetheless, the affiliation says she dresses "too sexy" for the game. She likes out of the chance to wear short skirts and tight tanks to practice and competitions.
Golf.com says, "Spiranac has become one of the most polarizing figures in the sport. Is she a much-needed agent of change, helping golf reach a younger, more diverse audience while demonstrating the awesome power of social media? Or is she a sideshow exploiting our baser instincts while distracting from the real competition between the ropes?"
Be that as it may, Paige unquestionably isn't staying silent on the issue. She as of late composed a section for Fortune, taking a stand in opposition to the new clothing standard. She's concerned it will possibly deter young ladies from playing golf. "In a world where women are continually and unwantedly sexualized, this new rule serves as yet another reason for women to feel ashamed of their bodies, and a reminder that to be respected, they must alter their behavior because of outside perception,” she writes. “By labeling women as looking ‘unprofessional’ when showing cleavage or shorts worn under a skirt, the LPGA is … insinuating that women do not have control over the perception of their bodies, but rather that they must bend to the every whim of the male gaze."
