Devil spawn... - Tradução em português

Por favor, traduzir os trechos destacados. Obrigado.

However tedious or inappropriate the task, I never heard a female peer refuse (save for babysitting three devil spawn) but the men politely did. Is this robust approach why men are not called upon for tea-making as frequently? The pressures of pupillage - a desire to please teamed with insecurity as to how refusing requests will affect your chances of tenancy - often leads to women being perpetually treated as second class pupils in some sets.

devil spawn = children of the devil (The writer is saying the children were terrible.)

chances of tenancy = In the USA, "tenure" is more common. Often when someone comes to a school or university, they can be fired easily and without recourse during the first few years. You might call these years their "probationary period". After that time, however, they have "tenancy" or "tenure" and can be fired only for serious offenses after a formal hearing/trial.

to lead = to conduct. cause, bring about
