Uchendu, Uchechukwu; Roets, Griet; Vandenbroeck, Michel – Gender and Education, 2019
Southern feminist theorists make a pertinent call for the democratisation of knowledge between the North and the South. In this article, we embrace a southern perspective in feminist theory while embarking on a genealogical analysis of gender constructs in research about Igbo women in South-Eastern Nigeria. In that sense, the study of gender…

Gillander Gådin, Katja; Stein, Nan – Gender and Education, 2019
Sexual harassment has become so frequent and ubiquitous in schools that these behaviours have become normalised and expected. In order to prevent the re-enactment and perpetuation of this problem, it is important to explore processes that contribute to its existence. A high school sexual harassment lawsuit in Sweden is used as a case study to…

Amsler, Sarah; Motta, Sara C. – Gender and Education, 2019
In this paper, we offer a critique of neoliberal power from the perspective of the gendered, sexualised, raced and classed politics of motherhood in English universities. By using dialogical auto-ethnographic methods to examine our own past experiences as full-time employed mother-academics, we demonstrate how feminist academic praxis can not only…

Naskali, Päivi; Keskitalo-Foley, Seija – Gender and Education, 2019
This article analyses university pedagogy by contrasting mainstream pedagogy and feminist pedagogical thought.

Woodfield, Ruth – Gender and Education, 2019
The landscape of UK higher education (HE) has changed significantly over the past decades. Key shifts relate to the changing gender balance of the undergraduate student body and to emergent gender gaps in retention and attainment. Men are now less likely to access HE, complete their degrees or achieve 'Upper' degrees. There has been minimal…

Larrondo, Ainara; Rivero, Diana – Gender and Education, 2019
As in other disciplines, 'gender mainstreaming' is becoming an increasingly important principle in Journalism. This implies bringing gender equality into the mainstream of the media industry, by means of an adjustment of the educational issues and the practice related to this profession, which is influential in society. In light of the gap…

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…

Callahan, Sarah; Nicholas, Lucy – Gender and Education, 2019
Despite explicit focus on addressing gender inequality in educational settings in Australia, without challenging gender binarism, inequality will persist.

Green, Dari; Pulley, Tifanie; Jackson, Melinda; Martin, Lori Latrice; Fasching-Varner, Kenneth J. – Gender and Education, 2018
The number of Black females enrolled in colleges and universities has grown in recent years, particularly at predominately white institutions (PWIs). Currently, research on the rise of Black females at PWIs is limited and fails to adequately address the emotional, social, and mental well-being of these students. Recent studies also largely ignore…

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…

Gouvias, Dionysios; Alexopoulos, Christos – Gender and Education, 2018
School textbooks are the main means of instruction and the main tool for the organisation of the teachers' pedagogic practices. Stereotypes concerning the two genders are inscribed in the curriculum and become evident inside the school textbooks. The present study, through a "content analysis" of the Greek-language textbooks used in the…
