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.


  1. That's such a good video...


  2. Thanks for finding this Julie. It was so good, and of course made me cry.

  3. It says teh video is no longer available?

  4. Oh, sorry Anna. I will try to find it again, and replace it! Damn You Tube!
