Femininity as Performance.
Walkerdine, Valerie
Oxford Review of Education, v15 n3 p267-79 1989
Explores the myth that female children perform poorly in school. Claims that teachers use negative language in evaluation of females, regardless of performance; thus legitimatizing the exclusion of females and supporting patriarchy. Discusses problems of women in academia and concludes that the empowerment of women threatens male academic superiority. (NL)
