Can you read a map?

I have to say that the stereotype that women can't read maps is really annoying and I find any generalisation like that irritating. That said, I actually reallu struggle to read a map, I have no idea why its just like my brain doesn't get it. I don't think its cos I am a woman I think its just something I can't do. My husband can read maps and if we are ever going somewhere new I will drive and he will read the map. How about you? Can you read a map?

Well, I'm a woman, and I can read a map. It might take a while to figure things out, but I can do. I've been asked by drivers (who were primarily family) to read a map for them while they were driving. I don't really remember anyone formally teaching me how to read a map, now that I think of it.
