Where’d all the women go?
I take the boys to a couple of clubs each week – music on Monday afternoons, and tumble tots on Friday mornings. The other adults are almost all women. Mostly the mothers of the children, but a few other female carers. The couple of dads (and possibly a young grandfather) are definitely in the minority.
Today at music it was a bit different though. More than half of the group was absent, for some unknown reason, and I was the only female carer. The teacher is female too, but otherwise all the adults were male. Two thirds of the children present were boys as well!
I have no idea where everyone else had disappeared to. It did strike me as being quite unusual to have such a high proportion of men present. A good thing, though!
