The changing face of girls’ uniforms
For many years, the critical issue in girls’ uniform was how to present themselves in a smart fashion reflective of our society’s values. Instead of focussing on the opportunities for girls that could be promoted through their uniform choices, uniform became quite stuck in a pattern of ‘skirts for girls, trousers for boys’ and this is still the case in the majority of schools. This worked well for a time and many girls are comfortable in a traditional skirt, however the world has changed.
