Are You A Boy or a Girl Finalist, Lambda Literary Award 2000
Karleen Pendleton Jimenez, 2000.

Kids spend a lot of time debating with each other over what makes a boy a boy and a girl a girl. It's a time of choices. It's a time of creating themselves. It could be a time for blending and embracing the many ways they express themselves, but it is too often a time of narrowing the possibilities of who they can be. Are You a Boy or a Girl? enters into this conversation and opens it up. It is the story of a child thinking through who she is, a child learning through her mother's love how to be both strong and soft.

EmBodying Equity: Body Image as an Equity Issue
Carla Rice and Vanessa Russell, 2002.

Traditionally, the word body image conjures up images of fat and thin, size and shape, dieting, and eating disorders. But, how we feel, what we do, and who we are inside our own skin encompasses much more than that. Body image is about personal histories, our race, our culture, our gender, our sexual orientation, our class, and our ability. Embodying Equity is a creative and innovative practical resource, which addresses the intersections of body image, identity, oppression, and equality. With a blend of theory and over fifty practical interactive exercises, this resource will help teachers and community workers empower young people to move toward a place of social action.

Tara Goldstein & David Selby eds. Toronto: Sumach Press, 2000.

A collection of essays by Canadian educators which document education philosophies and approaches developed over the past 30 years directed towards equity, justice, peacefulness and earth awareness. They also challenge some of the current directions in Canadian school reform - directions that promote "back to basics," centralization of control, corporate intrusion and other conceptions that focus on usefulness to the marketplace. In response, the authors describe some of the developments they see as more positive and that emphasize just and peaceful human relationships and social and environmental concerns.
