A letter written by a mother concerned by the number of women wearing leggings on a university campus in Indiana has sparked backlash and protests.
“I’m just a Catholic mother of four sons with a problem that only girls can solve: leggings,” Maryann White wrote in a letter published in the student newspaper.
Ms White explained that the sight of leggings “obtruded painfully” on her during a visit with her four sons, and made it “difficult for young guys to ignore” women’s bodies.
“Think of the mothers of sons the next time you go shopping and consider choosing jeans instead,” she suggested to the female students of the University of Notre Dame.
