no more Miss Nice G__

February 6, 2008

More than two years, ago, we published a feature about the Miss G__ Project:

The Miss G___ Project for Equity in Education is a growing group of people working to get women’s studies into Ontario high schools.

Since then, the group says it has organized many meetings with Ontario Ministry of Education officials and political figures, sit-downs, and other, less conventional, methods of getting attention. Still no women’s and gender studies. After some intense courtship, the government seems to no longer be taking Miss G__’s calls.

This is why there will be No More Miss Nice G__ as of February 14.

That day, supporters of the project are asked to “call the Ministry of Education expressing that we cannot afford to wait any longer for a Women’s and Gender Studies course to be added into the Ontario Secondary School Curriculum.”

Calling the Ministry of Education is absolutely not as stressful nor as intimidating as it may sound. In fact, you are a citizen and it is the Ministry's job to listen to you and to take your calls.

PHONE #s:
Kathleen Wynne's Office: 416.325.2600
TDD/TTY: 1-800-263-2892

WHEN: between 9am - 5pm Thursday, February 14 (If that doesn’t work for you, anytime is better than never).

Miss G__ has produced a handy video outlining the reasons for this action, and walking supporters through how to make the call:

  • September 22: fall equinox

    by Pat Hacker

    All religious traditions seem to have legends about going into the underworld to return again – a symbolic theme of death and rebirth that appears in a lot of popular films, too. The most famous and loved myth of the fall equinox and autumn season is that of Demeter and Persephone. One of devotion, faith, determination and sisterhood, it is a story about women. It is also the best way to understand why we have winter. read more
