I left out few points on the education section simply because the only thing it showed is that girls and boys have different interests they excel at. A Norwegian documentary called The Gender Equality Paradox proves that this is not socially enforced but rather because the minds of boys and girls are different it is natural for girls and boys to have separate interests and abilities.
An excellent post on why “Ban Bossy” (and the alleged “facts” attributed to it) is a load of crap.
