Closing the Gender Gap: Postwar Education and Social Change
The education gender gap is closing. Since the 1980s examination results have changed dramatically, as girls have "caught up" and, in some cases, overtaken boys. Through an analysis of the postwar transformation in British economic, social and cultural life, this important book provides valuable insights into how and why this unprecedented change has taken place.
Closing the Gender Gap will be essential reading for undergraduate and postgraduate students in education, sociology and gender studies.
