Flaps, it turns out, are a common way for French women to show affection in the early 20th-century, and “lippy,” the French term for a woman in bikinis, was originally a slang word for “a woman looking cute” or “a woman with an unviable figure.”


Flaps went on popular culture in the 1950s, and flapper fashion became so popular that in 1968 the government adopted a uniform to represent women wearing them.

The University is expected to issue a policy soon.

In addition, the Faculty Senate created a Committee on Diversity of Student Groups to develop an academic and institutional plan for enhancing the campus’ commitment to student-centered diversity through recruitment, recruitment and placement strategies.
