Students hoping to attend a University of California, Los Angeles event focusing on America’s “gendered regimes of incarceration” may have to do so in a cloud of body odor.

UCLA’s event description for “Thinking Gender: Feminists Confronting the Carceral State” in February warns attendees to “please refrain” from wearing products with fragrances, such as “perfumes, hair products, deodorants, detergents, etc.” This stipulation is meant to ensure the “health and safety” of all individuals at the event.

Presumably, the event would permit students to wear fragrance-free variants of those products.

The gathering of students will use “feminist, queer, abolitionist, and intersectional interventions” to confront the United States’ “gendered regimes of incarceration.”
