Is "Gender-Sensitive Education" a Useful Concept for Educational Policy?
Forde, Christine
Cultural Studies of Science Education, v9 n2 p369-376 Jun 2014
This article responds to Astrid Sinnes and Marianne Løken's article "Gendered education in a gendered world: Looking beyond cosmetic solutions to the gender gap in science" by exploring the idea of "gender-sensitive" education and its usefulness in educational policy. It draws on theoretical discussions of the concept of gender and of difference to consider ways in which "gender-sensitive" education might serve the task of promoting equality and justice.
