Boys Vs Girls

Observe many boys hanging around roadside tea stalls - these boys usually belong to relatively lower income groups; don't see any girls around these tea stalls. However, at the malls and cafe coffee day centres, it is a different story; there are as many girls as boys at these places.

In general, there are almost as many girls as there are boys in our society (maybe, 5-8 % difference). What are girls doing when their brothers are hanging around tea stalls?

=girls in relatively lower income groups are back at home helping mothers or doing work. Or girls are going to schools and studying well whereas boys are whiling away?
=girls in relatively higher income groups have the same freedom and exposure as boys?

On a similar note, observe lots of boys playing outdoor sports; where and what are girls playing?
