I BELIEVE THAT WOMEN’S STUDIES SHOULD BE PART OF THE CURRICULUM OF EVERY STUDENT IN EVERY CANADIAN SCHOOL —FROM THE  7TH GRADE (SECONDARY 1) TO GRADE 11 (GRADE TWELVE IN ONTARIO).

Guys will be thrilled!!!  And they will learn so much about the strength that is “WOMAN”….and they will develop a better appreciation for the fairer sex:)))

“I gotta go on doin’ it the way I see it…I got no choice but to take it like I see it. I’m here to have a party while I’m on this earth…I’m gettin’ it now, today. I don’t even know where I’m gonna be twenty years from now, so I’m just gonna keep on rockin’, cause if I start saving up bits and pieces of me…man, there ain’t gonna be nothing left for Janis.” –Janis Joplin

Military officers and doctors objected to Nightingale’s views on reforming military hospitals. They interpreted her comments as an attack on their professionalism and she was made to feel unwelcome. Nightingale received very little help from the military until she used her contacts at The Times to report details of the way that the British Army treated its wounded soldiers. John Delane, the editor of newspaper took up her cause, and after a great deal of publicity, Nightingale was given the task of organizing the barracks hospital after the battle of Inkerman and by improving the quality of the sanitation she was able to dramatically reduce the death-rate of her patients.
