Mexico City Mayor Claudia Sheinbaum recently announced the city is doing away with gender restrictions on school uniforms. ‘We are announcing something very simple but for us very transcendent. I think the times have passed in which girls have to wear a skirt and boys have to wear pants,’ Sheinbaum said. ‘Boys can wear skirts if they want and girls can wear trousers if they want.’ According to her comments, the new policy will come into effect immediately. It does away with the old policy stating ‘just as the skirt is the basic garment of a girl’s daily school uniform, so trousers are for boys’. Sheinbaum, who is a member of the left-wing political Morena party, described the policy as ‘a condition of equality, of equity’.
