Book Description

In particular, this book uses alternative theoretical perspectives to focus on how young children are 'doing' gender in kindergarten classroom.
Rather than relying exclusively on biological and socialization theories of gender construction, Blaise breaks down theoretical barriers with new understandings of how gender is socially and politically constructed by young children.



Mindy Blaise is Assistant Professor at RMIT University, Australia. She is also a Research Fellow at the Centre for Equity and Innovation in Early Childhood at the University of Melbourne.
