Protest for modesty

I applaud the letter about the skimpy clothing on the public statue dedicated to women. I add to that plea for modest apparel for brazen exposure of nice women and girls. Clothiers and commercial interests cheapen the glory of women and girls by tantalizing displays of awesome flesh. Feminists should share some blame in failing to adequately protest near-nudity in fashions and styles. Bold protests would carry more weight against sexual harassment.
