Answering Back exposes the volatility of gender reform in many different schools and classrooms. It tells stories in close up and from below, allowing everyone to talk: anxious boys, naughty girls, cantankerous teachers, pontificating principals and feisty feminists.

This book challenges many sacred ideas about gender reform in schools and will surprise and unsettle teachers and researchers. It draws on a deep knowledge of gender issues in schools and of feminist theories, policies and practices. It is compelling and provocative reading at the leading edge.


'Fascinating, unexpected, depressing, amusing, challenging and well worth reading. This book should reinvigorate gender policy.' - British Journal of Education Studies

'This is a very good book indeed.' - British Educational Research Journal, vol25 no. 5
