That the Ms. Foundation will do whatever it takes to keep boys from participating in its school holiday is to be expected. The interesting question is: Why is no one challenging the public school boards for their complicity in the exclusion? And why are corporations like Ortho-McNeil Pharmaceutical, AT&T, New York Life, Reebok, Merrill Lynch, American Express, and Deloitte & Touche footing the bill for a holiday that gives girls an excused absence to go off with their parents while keeping the boys behind to be chastened by Big Sister?
