Even before the age of miniskirts, it has always been deemed acceptable to regard a womans hemline as being indicative of her quality.
To this day, the mentality that womens clothes make them less or more deserving of harassment is still very present in our society. This is clearly observed in the use of sexual innuendo or disembodied female parts in the marketing of anything from vehicles to jeans, and even burgers.

These photos encourage us to examine our own preconceived notions, and are a powerful reminder that a womans worth has nothing to do with the dress, but everything to do with the woman wearing it.
