Dear Education Ministers
We support the Girls' Uniform Agenda!
Kids need to move! They need to be comfortable and able to engage in all aspects of school life, regardless of their gender. We're sure you know that when girls are wearing skirts or dresses, they exercise less than when they wear shorts and pants. We're sure you know that girls worry about accidentally flashing their undies when they're sitting cross-legged on the floor, and that they freeze in skirts on cold floors in winter. And we're sure you know that you open your governments up to legal action because forcing one gender to wear a restrictive uniform is in contravention to anti-discrimination legislation.
We, the undersigned, ask that you ensure that the uniform policies of your State or Territory are followed by every school that receives government funding. They should offer shorts or pants options for girls as well as boys. Being comfortable only on sports days isn't good enough.
