I've seen this before, and it's hilarious.
For years and decades and centuries, Women Can't Go To School because it
will overheat their precious little brains, and unfit them for the great
role of Motherhood.   Women who want to go to sit at a desk all day are
unnatural creatures and should be vilified. Only men can sit in the
classroom all day without danger.  Women certainly do not deserve to wear
the formal cap & gown of the student and scholar.

Then women get into school, legally, en masse. And surprise, they're quite
good at it.
Possibly better than the boys.
Oh wait.

Boys tend to become restless when they're expected to sit at a desk all
day!  It's not fair to expect them to perform as well as their feminine
counterparts.  The poor boy's brain might overheat if he has to sit down
all day.

Tra la. Science!
