I spent the majority of my school years at an all girls school where we had a say in the curriculum and our input was always welcome. This is where I discovered that I enjoyed School when I was good at it and despised anything I felt I didn’t excel in (This is a flaw I still struggle with.) Our health class was called ‘Go Grrrls’ and History was renamed ‘Herstory’. It sounds as though they were breeding a bunch of men hating extremists, however we learnt both sides to the stories we were told and had a plethora of male teachers to assure us that Men were not the enemy.
I strongly believe that my open minded parents, and by extension my siblings, combined with my girls only schooling influenced my opinion on body image.
