A government lower primary school in Valayanchirangara at Ernakulam district has shown the way of gender neutrality by introducing a common uniform to all its students. The gender-neutral uniform policy for gender neutrality that was introduced in the year 2018 by the then headmistress of the school, C Raji, requires the students to wear shirts and three-fourth trousers.
She said “This is a school with good vision. Gender equality was the main subject when we were talking about many factors to implement in the school. Therefore, uniform came to mind.
When I was thinking about what to do with it, I could see that girls face a lot of problems when it comes to skirts. The idea of a change was discussed with everyone. 90 percent of parents supported this at that time. The kids were happy too. I feel very happy and proud that this is being discussed now.”
