A Colombian university has faced a backlash after advising female students not to wear miniskirts to avoid “distracting classmates and teachers”.
Branding the advice sexist, students mounted a campaign to encourage everyone, male and female, to wear short skirts on campus on Thursday.
Medellín’s Pontifical Bolivarian University, known as UPB, had posted the advice on its website.
After an outcry, it said the tips were only meant as general suggestions.
Some of the advice was presented as unisex, but there were plenty of tips directed at women.
On Thursday, students shared pictures of themselves and classmates in shorts and skirts around the university.
