Whilst visting school classrooms in Kenya a couple of weeks ago I came across this poster on a wall:

I wasn’t quite sure what to make of it – was it a mistake and someone had planned to write husband/wife and then realised they weren’t opposites?  Was it deliberate and the school was telling its pupils that they’re not opposites?  Why not write the other side and cross both out?

So few girls complete the education in Africa that I couldn’t help but think it was not an accident though.
