Kmart Australia facing petition to stop separating boys and girls clothes in stores

A new online petition is calling on Kmart to stop separating boys and girls clothing in stores across Australia.

The campaign wants to see an “inclusive kids’ section” at Kmart that combines all clothing so that parents and children can “choose exactly what they like without arbitrary boundaries”.

The petition is currently being circulated on social media, attracting more than 100 signatures in three days.

A Kmart spokesperson has told 7NEWS.com.au that it is not “our intention to stereotype children based on gender”, adding that the “store layout reflects a majority of the way our Kmart customers shop”.

Started by campaign creator Sarah Rogers, the petition is asking for clothing to be separated by type rather than whether it’s designed for boys or girls.

“It’s time for you to stop classifying children’s clothing by gender,” the petition reads.
