Girls and boys are different. So why does schooling insist on treating them as identical? Could this misguided equality have anything to do with increasing dissatisfaction amongst women, as revealed by survey after survey? Bringing together many women's voices, from Bridget Jones to Simone de Beauvoir, Betty Friedan to Germaine Greer, James Tooley challenges education's sacred cows, demanding a radical rethinking of sexual politics and a fairer way forward for women.
