The world changes….people do - perceptions do.
Children brought up to think that there is absolutely no difference between boys and girls think so differently – it is hilarious.
So – some days ago my daughter was studying about the purdah system.
She read that when women wanted to speak to men they stood behind a wall with holes. From there they could see the men while they spoke to them – without being seen themselves.
How fair is that? She asked indignantly.
If the men can’t see the women – the women should not be allowed to see the men either!
We are all human beings – and everyone is equal and has equal rights – we have always taught her – with hilarious results.
