Stop Sexist Uniform Rule

Eleanor Beale started this petition to Head teacher

A new rule was enforced today at Hitchin Girls School - girls must have their skirts at least knee length whilst taking exams as not to provoke the male invigilators. It is 2016 and it isn't right that grown men are dictating the way that young girls should sit during an exam, lest they see a bit of thigh. Why are these men looking up teenage girls skirts? Why are they bothered by the legs of teenage girls? This is an old fashioned, out dated rule, and if the roles were reversed, you can imagine the outrage.  Teenage girls should be left to sit the way they want, not made to worry that adult males are looking at them during their exams.
