This Article examines three potential constitutional challenges to a school dress code that mandates traditional gender norms. The analysis focuses on the Ninth Circuit to illustrate the various hurdles potential student litigants face from case law that is not explicitly overruled. It is likely that despite these challenges, a student litigant will be able to successfully advance a constitutional claim against such a dress code in the Ninth Circuit.
