Two interesting stories on CBC's Metro Morining today, one following the other.

TDSB proposes Boys only school "boys act out more and get into much more trouble in the school system". I'm not a fan of this, mainly because I worry that it'll end up fostering the patriarchal mind-set.
At 17, Ankita Kumar-Ratta started Save The Girls, an NGO that aims to stop female feticide, the termination of a fetus on the grounds that its sex is a female. (sorry, could only find the audio link). The practice of aborting female fetuses is apparently alive and well in Canada in certain communities.
