High School`s Female Yearbook Photos Altered [Pic]

yearbookheader



Female students at a Utah high school were baffled when they opened their yearbooks this week to see their images had been altered to show less skin.

Sleeves were added and tops were digitally raised in several photos of girls at Wasatch High School. The students are now protesting the edits, which were made without warning and seemingly at random. I feel like they put names in a hat and pick and choose who, Sophomore Rachel Russeltold Fox 13. There were plenty of girls that were wearing thicker tank tops and half of them got edited and half of them didnt.

That accusation holds up. Heres a side-by-side comparison of two Wasatch students wearing nearly identical outfits. Sleeves were added to the photo on the right:

District superintendent Terry E. Schoemaker has so far offered a non-apology,telling Fox 13that the schools only mistake was not being more consistent with the edits. We only apologize in the sense that we want to be more consistent with what we're trying to do in that sense we can help kids better prepare for their future by knowing how to dress appropriately for things,

Here are some of the images that were altered, courtesy ofMyFox8:

The second image IS OF two different women! It said so in the article too.
It's an example of how some pics were, or were not edited. Not the same girl`s pic (which the rest of them are).

@Patchouly mentions this in the first comment But we can`t see that when the page is open, eh?

To me it's just more of the same. We (men) get offended with #YesAllWomen, yet, note that no boy`s photos were altered here. And I`m not saying they should have been, I`m just saying, the subtle sexism is so ingrained as to seem almost normal. And so, yeah, it`s high time we talk about it as a society, IMHO, and try to do something about it. It certainly isn`t going to hurt anyone to try.
