A girl at the school started a campaign to have equal representation, and apparently has been bullied by teachers and other pupils alike according to their Facebook page.

Good on her, I've signed and will circulate it. A small simple request that should have been easy to consider.

I can't believe she even had to ask, Assassinated. You'd think they'd have done it in the first place

Absolutely! The last school that I worked in introduced houses the year that I left. It had a fairly conservative SLT but even they managed to name 2 out of the 4 houses after women.

Stupid backward attitude from a school that should be educating not telling its female pupils women aren't as important as men.

I have signed. Don't know the girl or the school but happy to sign. Sad that a petition is needed. Fed up that women have to fight just to get half.
