Schoolgirls Wearing Skirts Locked Out of School for Not Wearing Gender Neutral Uniforms
- The Priory School on Mountfield Road in Lewes, England, says that it is not the only one introducing a gender neutral uniform policy and that everyone wearing the same uniform will instil a sense of equality among the students.
Girls who ignored the new policy and wore skirts today were banned from entering the school. Police officers were called during the protest to help prevent pupils who were involved in the demonstration gaining access to school premises.
The local MP, Maria Caulfield, has weighed in on the argument, saying that the girls should have a choice over whether to wear trousers or skirts.
