Fighting injustice


A quick answer to the question one young person asked me recently because of this video...

Q: What is this kid achieving?
A: The answer's in the clip.  He got the school to review its sexist uniform policy.
 
Comments on the video and the injustices people care about...

  • Not being allowed to wear jumpers at school.
  • Paying for university.
  • Not allowed to wear make up in school.

  • Not allowed a phone in your bag.
  • I don't like it when people get judged for who they are.
  • World poverty
  • Too much homework
  • Bullying
  • Naivety 
  • Girls and boys aren't treated the same
