Turnbull-Joyce feud threatens government

Mums are pushing for their daughters to be allowed to wear shorts to school.

A national movement for school uniform equality gathered renewed momentum this week after the West Australian Government made it mandatory for schools to offer girls the choice of wearing pants or a dress to school. In hundreds of schools around the country it's compulsory for girls to wear a dress or a skirt as part of their uniform. Girls do less physical activity if they're wearing dresses and health experts are calling for a change in uniform policy. Research on girls' activity levels and school uniforms showed that girls did less physical activity at recess and lunchtime when they were wearing a dress or skirt as opposed to pants.
