    Research has shown girls school uniforms are making them less active than boys

    Research has shown girls school uniforms are making them less active than boys


    Studies conducted in Australia which compared girls and boys uniforms... found they were walking significantly less steps in a day.

    Girls Uniform Agenda Author Amanda Mergler says schools aren't prepared to step away from tradition and change their uniform.

    She says public schools have told her they need their girls in dresses because it makes them look like a private school.
