A primary school in the United Kingdom had asked boys and girls to wear skirts to school to promote gender equality and show solidarity with a boy expelled from lessons in Spain. Consequently, teachers and pupil at Castleview Primary in Edinburgh participated in the initiative for the first time on November 4 this year, dubbed as “Wear a skirt to School Day.”
This initiative was taken on November 4 and children and teachers were asked to wear skirts in order to show equality among boys and girls.
Miss White, a teacher at the Castleview Primary, “P6 have been learning about the importance of breaking down gender stereotypes. We have organised a ‘Wear a Skirt to School Day’ to raise awareness of #LaRopaNoTieneGenero campaign. This will be on Thursday 4th November and we’d love everyone to get involved.”
The teacher told that children and staff are asked to wear skirt. She said that parents are asked to send their children into school with skirts.
“We want our school to be inclusive and promote equality,” an email from Castleview Primary said to a parent, Daily Mail reported.
