(WVLT) -- Some parents at a charter school near Wilmington, NC sued the institution because they called the school's dress code discriminatory toward girls and women. The Charter Day School's dress code prohibited female students from wearing shorts or pants.

Eventually, U.S. District Judge Malcolm Howard deemed the school's clothing policy unconstitutional, saying, "The skirt requirement causes the girls to suffer a burden the boys do not, simply because they are female."

The school claims their dress code instills quote, "chivalry" and "traditional values" in its students. However, even the school admits most of their female students wear skorts to class each day which, "provide modesty and agility."
