All-Girls School Taught Me

 

All-girls school taught me that shouting across the corridor that

you’re on your period is okay. And it’s true.

All-girls school taught me that sharing out your monthly supplies is

friendship. And it is.

All-girls school taught me that being a woman isn’t a limitation. That

what counts is how much you want something and how hard you

work for it.

All-girls school taught me that woman are complex: mean and kind,

loving and hardline. That there is as much nuance in a woman as there

is in a man.

All-girls school taught me that the only real evidence of a man is girls

suddenly no longer drinking, eating less or letting their mascara leak

down their face. That otherwise men could be nonexistent.
