I know that in cultures with a majority of the populous identified as Buddhist, that it is apparently quite common for boys to ordain for awhile. What is available and encouraged for Buddhist girls?
Certainly, if one’s brothers go off and ordain for awhile, girls would be inclined to think or feel some things. What is known about the Buddhist lives of girls? Do they just get more chores?
What could be interesting or supportive for them? Or are they utterly alienated?
