The document highlights some of the real issues of of the ways in which education perpetuates women's and girls' lack of citizenship status, in the context of current revival interest in citizenship education in Australia and other countries. The document highlights some of the real issues of continuing sexual difference and inequality in curriculum participation and its outcomes, which bear directly on men's and women's participation as citizens.
