|To the Editor: School event taught wrong lesson|

In the evening of March 21, Toth Elementary's Arts Festival started with my daughter's kindergarten class singing three songs.
In their grand finale, The Farmer in the Dell, a (male) farmer took a wife by the hand, and he led her around the room. In the same way, the wife took a child, and a cat took a mouse. Unfortunately, this kind of hierarchical family structure leaves women with child-like power in their relationships with men, and in too many families, this imbalance in power results in women being battered like a mouse up against a cat. In so many of our communities' families, girls learn that they should be dominated; empowerment is the lesson they should learn at school.
