A Brazilian university has expelled Geisy Arruda for wearing a short, pink dress to class. The private Bandeirante University in Sao Bernardo do Campo, outside Sao Paulo, says Geisy Arruda disrespected “ethical principles, academic dignity and morality.”
Arruda made headlines after the Oct. 22 incident, in which she had to be escorted away by police after wearing the mini-dress to class. She put on a professor’s white coat and left amid a hail of insults and curses.
Brazil’s national student union released a statement on Sunday saying it was against the university’s decision to expel Arruda, and Brazil’s top official for women’s policy, Nilcea Freire, told the official Agencia Brasil news service that the decision showed “intolerance and discrimination.”
