She received a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology in 1977, a Master of Arts in Education in 1980, and earned her PhD in Education in 1983. From 1986 to 2007, Lenskyj was a professor at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE), at the University of Toronto. She has been a teacher, an early childhood educator, and a community activist. Her research focuses on gender, sports, and sexualities.
Scope and Content
