Critical Reflections on the Experiences of a Male Early Childhood Worker.
Sumsion, Jennifer
Gender and Education, v11 n4 p455-68 Dec 1999
Presents a narrative of one man's experiences as an early childhood worker. Offers reflections from feminist and pro-feminist critical perspectives on the reactions and incidents he encountered. Explores tensions between risks and rewards, perceptions of power and powerlessness, and personal and political contexts. The tensions highlight the pervasiveness of hegemonic conceptions of masculinity and how they constrain gender reform. (SM)
