US Court Says Schools Can’t Force Girls To Wear Skirts

Skirts uniform


A US federal court just said that schools can’t force girls to wear skirts.



This was after the same court ruled that a private school is violating the constitution by forcing female students to wear a skirt with their uniform.


The school said that the purpose of wearing a skirt is to promote a culture where women are considered fragile whilst men are honourable and caring. According to the school, they cannot be restricted by the constitution since they are a private school.

According to Judge Barbara Milano Keenan, the idea that girls are fragile and in need of protection creates stereotypes with negative consequences on females.
