"The project was recently endorsed by the Ontario Secondary Teachers Association and representatives of the Miss G_ Project have been in contact with MPP Gerrard Kennedy, who is the Ontario Minister of Education. "
"We want to draw attention to the Ministry that there is a need and demand for this course, which is why we're holding the demonstration," Mohan said. "We're hoping to have people come out in the thousands."
"Of course, men have a huge stake in this," Mohan said. "They have girlfriends, mothers, sisters, so obviously this is a big issue for them.
"One individual wrote on a postcard that he wanted women's studies in high schools because he was tired of seeing fear in the faces of the women he loved."
I did a search on the forum and couldn't find this posted anywhere. Living in Canada this ticks me off. The last thing I want to see is my 14 year old brother going to school with girls his age who are enrolled in courses like this.
Feminists tried this back in the 60's and failed. So they went to college and pitched it there. A way for young women to learn about influential women in politics, business, etc. Seemed pretty harmless until they got in and showed their true colors.

What's next. Women's studies in middle school then elementary school??!
