    To compund matetrs in my case, it was the day my mither was the visiting parent at nursery school. She was appalled, but the teacher wasn't too concerns (consensus was the boy had it coming.)

    My great-aunts all played basketball pretty hard back in the 30s and 40s (one of them even played for some kind of pro team) and my mother was also a talented athlete. I'm too klutzy myself, but I certainly grew up with the idea that women are capable of physical toughness and skill. Still, I'm sure many people would be surprised to read about the skill and success of the women in this book.
