Brazilian uni readmits miniskirted student

National outrage provokes Arruda U-turn

The essential guide to IT transformation

Sao Paulo's Bandeirante University, aka Uniban, has decided to readmit the student expelled for wearing an insufficiently long skirt to campus, a garment which provoked a near riot as a baying mob of fellow students hurled abuse at the 20-year-old "whore".

The case of Geisy Arruda provoked nationwide outrage in Brazil, with both media and politicians queuing up to demand Uniban explain its actions. Amid mounting pressure, rector Heitor Pinto Filho yesterday evening announced he'd reversed the expulsion, and Ms Arruda was free to continue with her tourism studies.

Whether she does remains to be seen. Some press sources suggest she's none too keen to return, and may pursue legal action against the seat of learning for her ordeal.

One thing is certain, however: Arruda has declared she is "disinclined to change her way of life or her wardrobe". ®
