I am sure you expect me to say I disagree, lol. I agree, yes the curriculum designers and content developers have to do more in making it more suitable for girls to thrive. This is not an easy task but with the contribution and efforts of women in power and science it can be achieved. The problem is that the basic frameworks of science and maths education were made for a male audience when it was exclusive to men. Now is the time to rethink and join hands to come up with a science syllabus that will stimulate the girl to love maths and science. There has to be an improvement in the pedagogical approaches so as to enhance learning. The girl-friendly curriculum is not because girls are inferior, but because of the way society was structured by men consideration has to be taken of where women and girls are coming from. Those disadvantages and challenges faced by women have to be accounted for when coming up with any programme or curriculum.
