Summary
"Girls outperform boys in educational achievement, yet women in work are less well paid, are underrepresented in positions of power and carry a disproportionate burden of care and childcare. Eden analyses and interprets the latest data and research in the field to offer detailed historical and sociological explanations for this continuing inequity, exploring different dimensions of inequality and how they intersect. With discussion questions and selected further reading to support reflection on your own understanding and assumptions, it covers key topics: Historical approaches to the education of girls and women; Key theories and debates; Patterns of achievement and intersectionality; Attainment gaps and socio-economic status; Ethnicity and attainment gaps; Gender in the classroom and gender identity in schools; Patterns of employment and the nature of work; The gender pay gap; Women's experience of work Gender, Education and Work provides the arguments together with the historical evidence and research data required by serious Education Studies and sociology students engaged in the analysis of this urgent and complex topic"--Publisher's description
