ICYMI: School girls are being told to lengthen their skirts.

In case you missed it, a school in New Zealand has come under fire recently for instructing female students to lengthen their skirts. By ensuring that their skirts reach at least their knees, the school has suggested that boys will “stop…getting ideas”, and it will “create a good work environment for male staff.” Furthermore, they’ve proposed that the policy will “keep our girls safe.”

Kate de Brito, Mia Freedman and Monique Bowley debate whether this message is really about keeping young girls safe.
