A federal judge recently ruled that a North Carolina charter school’s uniform policy requiring girls to wear skirts on campus is unconstitutional.

Senior U.S. District Judge Malcolm J. Howard stated that the dress code violated female students’ rights under the equal protection clause of the Fifth Amendment.

“[Female students are] unable to play as freely during recess, requires them to sit in an uncomfortable manner in the classroom, causes them to be overly focused on how they are sitting, distracts them from learning, and subjects them to cold temperatures on their legs and/or uncomfortable layers of leggings under their knee-length skirts in order to stay warm, especially moving outside between classrooms at the School,” said Judge Howard.

Hague petitions in Thailand are filed in custody disputes when one parent flees to another country, taking the children.

The three students and their guardians who brought the case did not think it was fair that they were required to wear skirts to school while boys at the school did not face any comparable burdens.

The guardians of the female students filed the lawsuit with the help of the American Civil Liberties Union.
