Hollie Anderton and Ross McGill brilliantly dissect how and why gender is still a huge hurdle in terms of expectations for pupils in our schools – and what educators can do to help break down these harmful barriers.
They explain how we are setting children up to fail because society instils messages that can often stop them from achieving what they desire – and as teachers, we aren’t always opposing them. Often, teachers are so removed from this issue that they don’t see it going on in their classroom.

A much-needed book and complements the work of #WomenEd. The myth-busting sections are very helpful, as are strategies offered to deal with the myths that lead to fixed attitudes to gender. It’s easy to read and the voices of teachers and young people mean it is relevant and eye-opening at times!” (Vivienne Porritt, National leader of #WomenEd and Leadership Expert)
