The British Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) said making skirts part of a compulsory uniform could breach the rights of female-to-male transsexuals.. In official guidelines published ahead of the Equality Bill, which comes into force this autumn, the watchdog says that "requiring pupils to wear gender-specific clothes is potentially unlawful". It goes on to state that "pupils born female with gender dysphoria experienced great discomfort being forced to wear stereotypical girls’ clothes – for example a skirt." The EHRC, which can force public bodies to comply with equality law, said schools are obliged to be "proactive" in ensuring there is no discrimination against transsexual pupils.
