Fannin, Maria; Perrier, Maud – Gender and Education, 2019
In this paper, we discuss how 'with-woman' midwifery and doula care provide resources for rethinking the theory and practice of academic supervision from a feminist perspective.

Watson, Penelope Winifred St. John; Rubie-Davies, Christine Margaret; Hattie, John Allan – Gender and Education, 2019
School choirs have been stigmatised for adolescent males in New Zealand, resulting in constraints in involvement, bullying, and threat to gender identity. In other national contexts, boys who sing in choirs have experienced a negative stereotype associated with accusations of inferior masculinity, yet little research has probed whether such forces…

Play is a gendered activity among young children, especially boys. Boys often tend to be more actively engaged in the (re)production of gendered play. However, most research studies and conceptual papers have misread, ignored, devalued, or scrutinized the gendered ways Black boys engage in play. This idea is particularly true for Black boys who…

Sandretto, Susan; Nairn, Karen – Gender and Education, 2019
Educationalists lament the resilience of the so-called 'boy crisis', despite research that demonstrates only some boys are in crisis, as well as some girls. The boy crisis in New Zealand shows no sign of abating, partly due to popular rhetorical literature in the form of parenting advice books. In particular, authors Celia Lashlie and Nigel Latta…
