High school cheerleaders want less skimpy uniforms

A group of high school cheerleaders in Connecticut has garnered national media attention because they want new uniforms that are less revealing.

As one student says:
"It really hurts our self esteem," Bridgeport Central senior Ariana Mesaros told the Board of Education, according to the Post. "I am embarrassed to stand up here dressed like this. Is this really how you want Bridgeport to be represented?"

The girls took their concerns all the way to the Board of Education, which is now working on making changes to the uniform.

I tip my hat to these girls for taking a stand about something they care so much about. Good job, ladies!
