Why am I so annoyed that the school has put 'Mum's networking evening' and 'Dad's networking evening' on the spring calendar? Does it matter or am I being picky?

This is a school where only about 10% of the mums work by the way (me included)..

Do they have a lot of single parents?

I realise that not all single parents have come from a male/female relationship but most single parents do.

Separated/divorced parents might not feel comfortable attending a networking meeting together.

Maybe they have had parents' networking evenings and found they had mainly women and not many men.

Surely they could have two separate mixed sex parents evenings if they are worried about people having a sitter. No need to segregate, and it is also more flexible that way. Yanbu. I think they they men and women have different jobs

The school organising a networking event is a bit...ewww.

The school organising a 'mums' or 'dads' networking event is really ewwww.
