Standing Together

This is a picture of students learning with me in Grade 7. They are brother and sister. What I love about this picture is that men and women can stand equally next to each other.


Here, men and women do not stand next to each other. Husbands, wives. Brothers and sisters. The man is always in front. I thought that meant that I am not the same as a boy because I cannot stand next to him. But this picture shows that men and women can stand next to each other. That it is allowed.
