Where Have All The Girls Gone?8 April 2009
I thought I was imagining this so did a bit of a count-up recently. Why is just about everyone I know giving birth to boys? Among my friends/colleagues/knitting groups, the birth of a girl is a rare event – in fact it’s about 80/20 boys/girls.
Would any of you who have contact with kindergartens and child care facilities be able to tell me whether the ratios are a bit strange at the moment. (Or is it just my friends?)
