Nora, This is a great topic and I hope it generates some interest. Born in 1955, paddling was an option at my schools, but it was very rarely used - but the threat was always there (never got it myself). While it may have been unwritten, it was just a given that girls were not going to be spanked - even if they got in trouble for the same thing. I believe the thinking was that girls were delicate creatures while boys were wild animals. So it strikes me as really odd today, that while paddling in schools has greatly diminished, from what I read on the internet it seems nearly as many girls are now getting it as the boys. Chalk one up for women's liberation, I suppose.
