A student dressed with a skirt as part of the so called “Ce que souleve la jupe” ( “What raises the skirt?”) event in high schools arrives, on May 16, 2014, in front of the Clemenceau high school in Nantes, western France. For the “What raises the skirt” event, the academic administration responsable for high schools in the Nantes’ region invited “girls, boys, highschool students and staff to go to school on May 16, 2014 wearing a skirt or a pin reading ‘I fight sexism, what about you?’ to fight against all forms of sexism”.
