Eriksen, Ingunn Marie; Lyng, Selma Therese – Gender and Education, 2018
Although boys too are involved in relational aggression, their experiences are overshadowed by the focus on relational aggression among girls.

Green, Dari; Pulley, Tifanie; Jackson, Melinda; Martin, Lori Latrice; Fasching-Varner, Kenneth J. – Gender and Education, 2018

Davidson, Maria del Guadalupe – Gender and Education, 2018
This paper explores how opposite sides of the abortion debate employ a discourse of endangerment to mobilise political support for their ideologies about black women's bodies.

Ohito, Esther O.; Khoja-Moolji, Shenila – Gender and Education, 2018
Black girls and women in the west reside at the nexus of racism and sexism, pinned down by a vitriolic hate for the black feminised body that is wedded to legacies of slavery. Dominant discourses configure these bodies as animalistic and other (than human), thus informing a range of (educational) policies, practices, and programmes. These…

Clark, Lauren; Stitzlein, Sarah M. – Gender and Education, 2018

Our response has three parts. In the first, we outline the disproportionately negative health outcomes of sex education experienced by…

Gendered patterns of achievement emerged as a critical policy concern for the small island developing states of the Anglophone Caribbean as early as 1986. Although these patterns are mostly variegated, some males do appear to be disadvantaged on key schooling outcomes as evident in the literacy attainment gap for Trinidad and Tobago in PISA 2009…

Current, Cheris Brewer; Tillotson, Emily – Gender and Education, 2018
This paper follows one small, Christian university's five-year experience with student charity date auctions. The contemporary re-emergence of date auctions represents a backlash against gender and racial progress. Student leaders believe that in a post-racial and post-sexist society, race and gender are decontextualised neutral elements of…
