Tonight's Show: Feminist Curriculum at The Calgary Girls School!

Join us tonight for an interview with The Calgary Girls School (CGS) - a public school for girls in grades 4-9. What's really unique about the CGS is that it has some pretty progressive - even feminist(!) - curriculum.

In addition to teaching standard Alberta curriculum, the CGS has a program called "Go Grrrls" which helps young girls transition into successful, healthy women. The curriculum has several goals which are really cool - some of the most interesting ones include:
  • Achieving a competent gender-role identification
  • Establishing a healthy body image
  • Developing a positive self-image
  • Understanding sexuality
Join us tonight from 8:00 to 8:30 pm on CJSW 90.9 fm for this awesome interview! As always, if you miss our live show you can download our podcast.

  1. I just found your blog and find it to be inviting. I run a girl's program in PA and wrote a curriculum called Journey to Womanhood. I look forward to following your work.
