High-school freshman starts Modesty Club
Bye bye, exposed cleavage and short shorts. Paige Hatch wants students to show less skin.
How much skin is too much? Signal Miley Cyrus midriff-baring paparazzi photos. Or simply ask Saige Hatch of South Pasadena High School in South Pasadena, Calif.
Hatch has had more than enough of her peer’s suggestive school attire. Inspired by her brother’s No Cussing Club, the courageous teen started the Modesty Club in an effort to encourage less sexualized fashion decisions.

"From elementary to middle school, and then to high school, I noticed immodesty," Hatch was quoted on ABC.com. "I really wanted to start a club to bring awareness to it and bring remembrance to what modesty is."
Although Hatch’s high school already has a dress code in place, the freshman is fighting for stricter guidelines and a vote to enforce the dress code or switch to uniforms, reports ABC.com. She also plans on taking her cause to fashion designers to create more modest clothing for women.

"A shift is coming, sneaking through the literal fabric of our culture," read a statement on the club’s website. "Our bright heroic women are being made the fool. A fool to think that to be loved they must be naked. To be noticed they must be sexualized. To be admired they must be objectified."
Right now, the Modesty Club boasts just 17 members at school, but the young woman has caught the eye of more than 1,000 members nationwide who’ve joined her cause to cover up.
