For this week’s prompt I found numerous photos of children playing. They live all over the world. It was a lot harder to find photos of girls playing. Most of the girls were depicted in drawings, not in photos.

    You’re right about finding vintage photos of girls at play. Not common perhaps because in families that could afford cameras, girls were discouraged from engaging in the same physical recreation as boys. Balls games, bicycles, even table games were very gender biased.
