Alarming new reports of sexual harassment in Toronto’s high schools show the need for Queen’s Park to create a women’s studies course without delay, says a group of university students who have been lobbying the province for this kind of course for three years.
The women protested yesterday outside government offices in Toronto with a mural of headlines and articles about sexual assaults and murders of women that have taken place since they began pushing the Liberals for the course.
Education Minister Kathleen Wynne attended the demonstration and said progress is being made in developing the optional course
Miss G Project
- The group calls itself the Miss G Project, a nod to the first American woman to attend university, known only as Miss G, whose premature death in 1873 was blamed by doctors on overuse of her brain.
