Girls, Boys and Junior Sexualities takes an insightful and in-depth look at the hidden worlds of young children's sexualities. Based upon extensive group interviews and observation, the author illustrates how sexuality is embedded in children's school-based cultures and gender identities. From examining children's own views and experiences, the book explores a range of topical and sensitive issues, including how: the primary school is a key social arena for 'doing' sexuality sexuality shapes children's friendships and peer relations being a 'proper' girl or boy involves investing in a heterosexual identity children use gendered or sexual insults to maintain gender and sexual norms. Grounded in children's real-life experiences, this book traces their struggles, anxieties, desires and pleasures as they make sense of their emerging sexualities. It also includes frank and open discussions of the pressures of compulsory heterosexuality, the boyfriend/girlfriend culture, misogyny and sexual harassment. Girls, Boys and Junior Sexualities is a timely and powerful resource for researchers, educationalists and students in childhood studies, sociology and psychology and will be of great interest to professionals and policy makers working with young children.

While masculinities theory has had much to say on relationships of subordination, few feminist legal scholars have examined the implications of masculinities theory for feminist legal theory. This volume investigates the ways in which emerging masculinities theory in law could inform feminist legal theory in particular and law in general. As many of the chapters in this collection illustrate, law is constantly in a dynamic interaction with masculinities: it has both influenced existing masculinities and has been influenced by those masculinities. The contributions focus feminist and critical theoretical attention on masculinities and consider the implications of masculinities theory for law and legal theory. The book sets out the theoretical trajectory of masculinities studies as a field and its application in law and uses insights from a masculinities approach to study socio-political construction of gender identities in specific settings. It also explores how understanding historical construction of gender identities can inform more effective public policy and activism. Written by leading experts in the area, the book poses important questions about the development of the relationship between feminisms and masculinities theory and will be essential reading for those working in law and gender and related areas.

Violence in and around schools is a global phenomenon, but the gender dimension has been largely ignored. This is the first a comprehensive account of the nature and scale of gender violence in school settings across the world. Its publication coincides with that of a two-year global study for the United Nations on violence against children. The book will raise awareness and increase understanding of gender violence in school settings. But it also presents innovative strategies to combat it. Many chapters focus on participatory methodologies for working with young people on reducing violent and abusive behaviour in school through curriculum development, and educating teachers, trainee teachers and youth groups to prevent such behaviour. There are also chapters on gender, youth and sexuality in the context of HIV/AIDS. As an emerging area of research, this book will interest academics, teachers and researchers in both the industrialised and the developing world, as well as policymakers, staff of NGOs and development agencies. The editors and contributors report from the following countries: Gary Barker, Brazil; Catherine Blaya, France; Nazish Brohi and Anbreen Ajaib, Pakistan; Fatuma Chege, Kenya; Neil Duncan, UK; Erika George, USA; Sara Humphreys, Botswana; Jackie Kirk and Rebecca Winthrop, West Africa; June Larkin and Carla Rice, Canada; Martin Mills, Australia; Robina Mirembe, Uganda; Devia Bhana, Monica Mak and Robert Morrell and Gethwana Makhaye, all on South Africa; Shekar Seshadri and Vinay Chandran, South Asia; Kay Standing, Sara Parker and Laxmi Dhital, Nepal; Gladys Teni-Atinga, and Lucy Stackpool-Moore and Tania Boler, all on Ghana; Shannon Walsh and Relebohile Moletsane on Southern Africa and Canada; Olga Zdravomyslova, Russia; and Shaheen Shariff and Rachel Gouin writing about cyberbullying.

"As a practising youth worker and researcher, I found this book a fascinating and engaging read...It provides a useful analysis and exploration of the classed and gendered 'anti-school' ethic in place presently within many schools, and it will provide a meaningful analysis for academics, policymakers and practitioners and anyone with an interest in gender, education and young people." Fin Cullen, Goldsmiths College, Review in Gender and Education"I would [therefore] urge everyone concerned with what is happening in schools to read this book, with its fascinating data and nuanced arguments." Heather Mendick, London Metropolitan University - Review in British Journal of Educational StudiesThis innovative book looks at how and why girls and boys adopt 'laddish' behaviours in schools. It examines the ways in which students negotiate pressures to be popular and 'cool' in school alongside pressures to perform academically. It also deals with the fears of academic and social failure that influence pupils' school lives and experiences. Drawing extensively on the voices of students in secondary schools, it explores key questions about laddish behaviours, such as: Are girls becoming more laddish and if so, which girls? Do boys and girls have distinctive versions of laddishness? What motivates laddish behaviours? What are the consequences of laddish behaviours for pupils? What are the implications for teachers and schools? The author weaves together key contemporary theories and research on masculinities and femininities with social psychological theories and research on academic motives and goals, in order to understand the complexities of girls' and boys' behaviours.This topical book is key reading for students, academics and researchers in education, sociology and psychology, as well as school teachers and education policy makers.
