Girls, and Gender and Power Relationships in an Urban Middle School
McCullough, Susan
Gender and Education, v29 n4 p495-507 2017
This paper describes the practices employed by middle school girls in New York City to negotiate their postfeminist school environment and considers the contested notion of girls' agency. Based on an exploratory ethnographic study, the data reveal that girls--to varying degrees of success--enacted a range of practices to gain power over the pervasive sexism as well as the masculine hegemonic behavior that was the norm at their school.
