A Cornell University senior delivered her honors thesis after stripping down to her bra and underwear in front of her teacher and classmates — at least two dozen of whom also undressed — in a bid to “stand against oppressive beliefs and discrimination,” Campus Reform reported Tuesday.

Letitia Chai removed all her clothes except for her undergarments during her “Acting in Public” presentation Saturday as a demonstration against her professor, Rebekah Maggor, who questioned Chai’s attire during her talk about refugee relocation, according to The Cornell Daily Sun.

The article goes on to state the following:

“When I got up to start, my professor said: ‘Is that really what you would wear?’” Chai, who said she was “shook” and filled with “rage and disbelief” after the incident, wrote in a Facebook post that soon went viral. “She, a white woman, continued: ‘Your shorts are too short.’”

Chai recalled wearing a “long-sleeve blue button-down shirt and denim cut-offs,” which she alleges her professor told her was “inviting the male gaze away from the content of my presentation and onto my body.” She says an international male student agreed with the professor.

The report indicates that the class syllabus includes the style of “dress” as one of the course requirements.

“For your performances, dress appropriately for the persona you will present,” the syllabus reportedly reads.
