Meenal Goyal started this petition to HRD Minister India

I'm starting this petition as i feel that young girls are being unnecessarily burdened by gender bias by making them wear salwar kameez in schools. They also have equal right to dress as boys .... policy makers believe that they are protecting girls by making them wear only salwar kameez while boys wear pants and shirt. But actually it is working the other way round..this inequality of dress change is creating an environment of gender bias.girls from 6th standard onwards are made to wear salwar kameez in schools while boys are still wearing pants and shirts. The same girls who were wearing tunic or skirt earlier are now forced to wear salwar kameez just because they are girls..

Girls at the tender age of 11years (6th std) start feeling that why their dress has been changed while  boys are still coming to school in pants and shirt. Why they are in an Indian dress while boys are allowed to wear western outfit  What do u tell a small girl-that this is because she's a girl. A girl should be Indian while a boy can be western anytime. Then where does the gender Equality stand... We ourselves throw it away to the winds. At one time we are saying girls and boys are equal in all respect and at the same time we tell our girls that u've  to dress differently in school because u r a girl.  Pants and shirt is equally safe and comfortable for girls.

Girls are also equally comfortable in pants and shirt and it's a decent dress code.....pants and shirt also gives them freedom of movement  comfort, decency and Equality of dressing..by making young girls wear salwar kameez, we ourselves are telling them that they are not equal.we make them conscious that their bodies are different. We make them realize they need to be covered. If this be the case then soon we'll need to start sending our girls all covered up from head to toe so that nothing is visible at all and they are permanently protected..is this the right way to teach them Equality and freedom. 

We are developing a sense of fear in their minds, when these innocent minds ponder that why are boys in their routine dress but the dress of girls has been changed to salwar kameez.we are forcing the gender inequality in their mind and personality by this dress change.

However if we give them the same dress code of pants and shirt from the beginning and do not change it afterwards, we actually give them the security of gender, Equality of gender and freedom in real sense - freedom of mind ,freedom of expression, freedom of attire.... Schools are the building blocks of development of a child... So dress code / uniform should have uniformity to help children of any gender develop into a secure being.

I request to all through my petition to please take a step towards gender Equality and start it at school itself...... By starting a uniform dress code, either of pants and shirt or else it should be Indian dress for both boys and girls..... There should be no discrimination of dress code...... It's a humble request from a girl, a lady, a mother to all parents and our HRD minister to give freedom to our little girls......  Let's give our girls a real freedom! A real sense of Equality!!
