Abstract

On a college notice board a large colour poster shows a girl smoking a cigar. The caption reads ‘Girls are not supposed to smoke cigars. What else is it they are not supposed to do?’ The answer is in smaller type: ‘A girl is not supposed to think she is anything except a girl. A girl is not supposed to take charge of anything. A girl is not supposed to care about getting a lengthy education, because she will only want to get married and have children. And the punchline: ‘The prejudices are many but it is possible to break them.’
