Differently Literate: Gender Identity and the Construction of the Developing Reader.
Millard, Elaine
Gender and Education, v9 n1 p31-48 Mar 1997
Argues that three specific areas of influence contribute to shaping the attitudes and expectations of adolescent reading in Britain: family; friendship groups; and school peer groups. Responses from 255 children reveal marked patterns of gender difference in the reading experience and identify the school curriculum's role in promoting particular versions of literacy that appeal more to girls than boys.
