Girls don't play soccer? La Martiniere kicks up a storm by giving just boys school leave

All was good till news came in that La Martiniere for Girls (LMG), their sister concern, didn't get a leave on Monday. And why? According to The Telegraph, it is because the school decided to play by the good old gender rule-book and give the boys a day off on the assumption that they will be watching football. The girls on other hand, were not given a leave, again on the assumption that they might not be watching the game and hence there's no reason why they shouldn't attend school next day.
