Earlier this month, an unnamed law student in Algeria was refused entry to an exam by a supervisor because her skirt came above the knees.
The Law Faculty of Algiers argued that exam attendance "requires a decent outfit" and denied claims that it was discrimination.
Speaking to TSA Algérie, Mohamed Tahar Hadjar, the dean of the university of Algiers' Faculty of Law, said that the supervisor made the right decision: "Wearing a short skirt is not authorised inside the university... It's their job to uphold the rules of the faculty ... it requires a decent outfit, for both girls and boys." He added that he believed it to be a "trivial matter."
