There was one thing getting under 15-year-old Saige Hatch’s skin, too much skin. The freshman at a South Pasadena High School was sick and tired of her peers revealing too much so inspired by her brother’s No Cussing Club, she started the Modesty Club at South Pasadena High School in South Pasadena, California.

“A shift is coming, sneaking through the literal fabric of our culture,” read a statement on the club’s website. “Our bright heroic women are being made the fool. A fool to think that to be loved they must be naked. To be noticed they must be sexualized. To be admired they must be objectified.”

Right now there are only 17 members in her school’s chapter, the website has raked in 1,000 members from all 50 states as well as 14 countries.
