dc.description.abstract Perceptions and experiences of a women-specific curriculum (Women’s Studies course) taught in a Western Canadian high school constitute the focus of this study. The available sample of fifteen adolescent girls and three professional women were interviewed, individually and in small focus groups. Supplemental data were obtained through an online survey completed by seven additional previous student respondents. Research literature that shaped the study includes Women and Gender Studies, Education (Adolescent Development and Identity, Curriculum Studies, Anti-oppressive Education), and Feminist Sociology. Benefits and challenges of integrating women-specific curricula into high school are discussed with the recommendation that such courses are needed in senior secondary education in public schools. en_US
