London, Oct 7 (ANI): A student who was expelled from her university for wearing a mini dress has won 15,000-pounds payout from her university.
Geisy Arruda was thrown out of Bandeirante University in Sao Paulo for sporting the red outfit in class, leading to a massive public outcry.
She was expelled for disturbing classes through "a flagrant lack of respect for ethical principles, academic dignity and morality," reports The Sun.Arruda's lawyers, however, have asked for a bigger compensation amount - saying they were seeking a much higher pay-out for her "trampled dignity".
The university backed down on the expulsion after the education ministry accused it of "total intolerance and discrimination". (ANI)
