Why are girls doing better?
Stabroek News – December 20, 2005
Interesting – Ian McDonald’s Sunday column article headed “Let women keep the lamps”. The question of girls doing better, on the whole, in the education system is something exercising the minds of the educational sector in Britain. No one seems to have an answer so far.
One of my favourite sayings is “Men mess the world up, women have to put it right”. When I expressed to a friend of mine views similar to Ian McDonald’s about women taking a more active part in politics and playing a more prominent role in world affairs, she wondered whether this was such a good idea, because, as she put it, “women are too emotional”.
Many of us are still mourning the retirement of Baroness Thatcher from the political scene – she made us sit up and think, whether we wore her political ‘colours’ or not.
I remain convinced that women are from Mars, men from Venus! A Happy holiday season to everyone.
