"I attended Orwell
Primary School. I remember my mum
sending me to school with trousers on. Girls at that time were not
allowed to wear trousers. I was threatened with being sent home and told
them my mum didn't have anything else for me to wear.
At break, my friends agreed to wear their
trousers to school next day, arguing they can't send us all home. They
didn't send us all home and not long after girls were allowed to wear
trousers, as long as they were dark. Feminism
at an early age!"
