Gender stereotyping in action

November 04, 2009

Tonight I went to the house of one of the other parent governors to talk about a newsletter we're writing. As I arrived, his young son stuck his head around the door.

Him: Hello!
Me: Hello! You're in the same class as my little girl, Izzy.
Him: (looking at me closely) Oh! You're Izzy's Mum?
Me: Yes.
Him: Do you work in the office with my Daddy?
Me: No, we're both governors at the school. We've got to talk about some stuff.
Him: (surprised) Oh! I thought only Daddies could be governors!
