Female students at a school in the UK were prevented by officials and police from attending class because they refused to comply with a new “gender neutral” uniform policy.
Around 100 students protested outside the gates of Priory School in Lewes in response to a letter sent at the end of the summer advising they would be mandated to wear trousers at all times.
The school claimed that the policy change was put in place to “address inequality,” and be “inclusive,” but students and parents were outraged.
“A gender neutral uniform would allow boys to wear skirts and girls to wear skirts and both to wear trousers,” said parent Sheila Cullen.

Maria Caulfield MP for Lewes asserted it was “ridiculous” to tells girls they couldn’t wear skirts.
“It is political correctness gone mad,” she said.
