If you are going to get rejected when turning up for selection because of what you wear ( which presumably would be just a fairly ordinary skirt i.e. nothing salacious or unacceptable ) then would you really want to be selected?
I believe in offering every assistance short of actual help but then mainly just want to be left to be myself in all my difference and uniqueness.

The last 3 times I was called for Jury Duty, I wore pants.
I didn't want to rock the boat in anyway, shape or form.
I only served once, the other times I was let go with the
rest of the citizens.

Two years ago I was summoned to jury duty; ultimately to serve on a jury hearing a case of child molestation. By that time I was wearing skirts and dresses everywhere, including work, so after a little internal turmoil, I decided to wear them for jury duty as well.

Before I was done, I wore a skirt or a dress every single day, was looked up to by my fellow jurors for my experience with jury duty and my other abilities.

I even became lasting friends with a fellow juror who is about my age and complimented the prosecutor -- a trim, good-looking woman who was always very nicely dressed -- on the suit she was wearing one day.

I didn't get any sense that anyone -- none of the attorneys, witnesses, defendant or fellow jurors -- had any problems with how I was dressed. Not even the deputies who were working the metal detectors at the door.

If you're comfortable and self-confident in the clothes you're wearing, you'll do just fine. I also feel that, especially in situations such as a court proceeding, it goes over better if you dress just a little nicer than the best-dressed of your fellow jurors.

I agree with that, and it's kinda funny that I only have one nice "guys" outfit (a pair of dress pants and a button up shirt), I wear it on special occasions when I need to look traditional and nice, such as funerals, job related stuff (I wore it on my interview in 2018), etc...

Aside from that I actually have probably about six or seven skirted outfits that would be court acceptable (assuming I was a woman). Not everything I have is hippy boho... :wink:

As for whether I'd wear the skirts to jury duty, well... it's either that or I wear the same [mans] outfit every day until it's over! :lol:
