The photo of the quote went viral with plenty of people wondering how something so misogynistic could be thought acceptable inside a school.

Please be advised that the quote on the wall of Gregory Lincoln PK-5 Education Center has been removed. Overnight, the wall decal letters were taken down, the wall was floated out, and new slab of drywall was installed and painted.
