A California college is updating its gym uniform policy after a male employee advised a female student to “cover up.”
Leila Mori, 30 years old, visited the gym at her school, California State University, Fresno, in September when she says she was confronted by a male staff member and asked her to “cover up” while working out.
When the employee made the complaint, Mori was wearing high-waist yoga leggings and a sports bra, she told the Fresno Bee, saying that her midriff was exposed only about 2 inches.
Mori started complaining about the incident, saying that the present dress code for the gym was a form of body shaming females.

“I felt very sad and I felt very, like, ashamed in an instant,” Mori told the employee’s statement to Fresno Bee.
Mori tried to report the incident to Derek A. Walters, director of the Red Sports and Fitness Center at the school, but Walters reportedly defended the behavior of the employee.
In October, Mori lodged a Title IX complaint against the university, mentioning the dress code as unfair to ladies, according to the news outlet. However, after the school decided to look at its dress code policy, Mori eventually closed her complaint.
The school is now considering changing the gym dress code, according to the news outlet, which currently provides all members to wear a “covering the torso shirt while on the grounds.
“The dress code is going through possible revisions, but possible changes are still undergoing review,” said Lisa Boyles, Fresno State spokeswoman, in an email to the Fresno Bee. “To discuss how the completed guidelines could look before the review and approval process is done, it would be premature.”
Dress code rule details were not discussed or the prospective date when they would come into effect.
