This article examines the recent debate over sex education in Ontario through the lenses of women, rights, and religion. It seeks to problematize all three lenses as well as to show how the three categories intersect. It endeavours to expose some of the power dynamics in the debate. It suggests that better ways need to be found to interrogate religion in the public sphere than either simply accepting or condemning its presence.
