My friend's nine-year-old daughter Mgabh came home from school the other day and said to her: "You know, Mummy, when it comes to picking the teams for football in the breaks, the boys are always picked first and then the girls. There's one girl who's really good and she gets picked before some boys. But then they pick the rest of the boys, and then me and the other girls, even though we're better than some of the boys who get picked before us. And the boys who tease us the worst about girls not being good at football are always the boys who are the worst players themselves. "
