What it feels like for a girl...

I taught first grade on Tuesday. During recess three girls came back into the classroom. They were very upset that the older boys were not letting them take a turn in kickball.

I stumbled on this video. In Ethiopia, any girl would count herself extremely lucky to ever attend school. I am not criticizing my students. They are lovely, and working on their own empowerment on the playground. I just wish that these Ethiopian girls had the same problems.
