Woman Refused Entry to Museum for Wearing Low-Cut Dress

Share on Facebook

There isn’t a day that goes by without a woman somewhere being judged for her choice of dress.

This story is no different. It’s the story of a woman who was refused entry into a Paris art gallery. Why? For wearing a low-cut dress that was ‘too revealing’.

The young woman in question took to social media to share her story, as well as sharing a photo of herself wearing the dress.

And most of the time, it’s by men.

But countless times, I’ve been in situations where a woman is told to cover up – or made to feel uncomfortable for her choice of clothing.

It’s the story of French literature student and art-lover Jeanne.

Paris’ iconic art gallery – dedicated to the visual arts of the 19th century, including paintings, sculptures, furniture, and photography.

Van Gogh, Renoir, Manet, Monet, Cezanne, Courbet, Matisse, and many, many more.

I’m not talking OnlyFans, but you know what art can be like! Lot of nudity.

Well, you’ll be shown the door ridiculously, as poor Jeanne found out just a few days back.

With temperatures hitting 26 degrees, so understandably Jeanne didn’t want to be completely covered up.

But before she could even show staff her ticket to gain entry to the gallery, she was immediately turned away.


Oh no, that’s not going to be possible, that’s not allowed, that is not acceptable.

And staff then refused her entry, claiming that ‘rules are rules’ – although they didn’t specify what rules they were talking about.

She said:
At no time does anyone say my cleavage is a problem, they’re manifestly staring at my breasts, referring to them as ‘that’. It was far from my mind that my cleavage would be the subject of any disagreement.

Jeanne continued to explain:


I am not my breasts, I am not a body, your double standards should not be an obstacle to my right to access culture and knowledge.

But she was only allowed into the museum when she finally put her jacket on.

In their apology, the museum said that they ‘deeply regretted’ the incident and offered their ‘apologies to the person concerned’.

Jeanne said that she feels the public response ‘fails to recognize the sexist and discriminatory nature of the event’.

And that the museum had been very understanding and provided a ‘very sincere apology’.

Jeanne insists that she’s not bitter about it and that as an art lover she would love to go back.

Personally I don’t see any problem with it. It’s just a dress…
