Full Plot

After Principal Skinner makes a chauvinistic remark towards a former female student, an uproar ensues, prompting for his demotion. Subsequently, Melanie Upfoot (Frances McDormand) is appointed the new principal of Springfield Elementary, whom divides the school into two, one for boys, and the other for girls. Frustrated with how the boys in her school are being educated more so than the girls, Lisa disguises herself as a boy to expand her knowledge, and as a result, wins the Student Achievement Award.

- The episode's title is a reference to 'Cyndi Lauper' (qv)'s song "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun".

- Liquid Paper was invented by Bette Nesmith Graham (woman), Paper by Tsai Lun (man), Windshield Wipers by Mary Anderson (woman), the car by Nicolas-Joseph Cugnot or Ferdinand Verbiest (both men), Nylon Stockings by Allen Gant Senior (man - Marge is wrong), Rocket Ships by Lieutenant General Henry Shrapnel (man), Suspension Bridges by James Finlay (man), Snow Shoes by Sondre Norheim (man), Pinball Machines by Henry Joseph (man), and no one person invented Constitutional Government or the Renaissance, however women didn't have any power back then, so it's unlikely that any women had a hand in either of them.
