NEWSPAPER library: The school public debate about the use of the school uniform
from the next academic year the schools of Galicia, in which students wear school uniform will not be able to force them to be dressed differently according to the sex nor to impose on the girls who wear skirt.
This is the result of an agreement reached on Wednesday in the Plenary of the Parliament of Galicia, in which all the political parties with parliamentary representation, voted in favor of a proposition, not of law presented by In Tide by urging the regional government to adopt the necessary measures to avoid this type of distinctions in the school dress.
The result of this agreement, which counted with the votes in favor of PP, PSOE, BNG and Tide is that the girls of Galicia will be able to go to school with pants if they so choose and, in this way, in the words of deputy Luca Chao, will be able to "leave behind the anachronistic duty to do so with a skirt", a garment that "is a symbol of traditional gender roles".
The mp In Tidal defended the proposal arguing that the skirt imposes limitations in movement, to the girls, in such a way that conditions their participation in numerous games and activities that contribute to the generation of distinctions by gender in the school environment.
The agreement of a parliamentary implies that the Xunta of Galicia implement and apply the policy and regulatory measures necessary to avoid, from the next academic year, the requirement by schools of different uniforms for each sex and shall specify explicitly the option that the students can choose to go to the learning center with pants.
This agreement comes in the week of 25 November, international Day for the eradication of the violence of machismo, because they wanted to put the focus on the school as a "trench key against machismo", a first key space in which to work for a society feminist.
in Addition, since the driving group of the initiative highlights that the Supreme Court has already been expressed by saying that compel women and men to wear attire differential goes against the right to equality, as enshrined in article 14 of the Constitution and by-Luca Chao insisted in Parliament that the skirt is much more of a symbol, is an element which "perpetuates the traditional division of roles imposed on girls and children from the time they are small."
Since In Tidal stress that this agreement is a small step, but, without doubt, very important to promote decision-making capacity and autonomy of girls and a preview for "never more speak of rights if it is not for all women".
