UK RETAILER JOHN Lewis has taken the decision to remove gender-specific labels from its children’s clothing.

The styles of clothing, be it jeans, shorts and dresses, will remain the same but they will now be labelled  ”Girls & Boys” or “Boys & Girls”.

John Lewis will also do away with separate sections of the store for girls and boys and will instead have a single section for children’s clothing. We’re asking if you think this is a good idea.

Today’s poll, Do you think getting rid of girls and boys children’s clothing labels is a good idea?


Poll Results:

No (6998)
Yes (3915)
Don't know (884)
