Both from the point of view of the experiences of different groups of students, and also with respect to the form that education about sexuality, sex, and relationships should take, education and sexuality raises complex questions and provokes heated sometimes furious debate. This four-volume collection offers an authoritative overview of key issues within the rapidly developing field of sexualities and education. Under the editorship of Peter Aggleton (editor-in-chief of the international journal, "Sex Education"), the collection covers a wide range of contemporary issues and concerns, including: the sexualities curriculum around the world; politics and pleasure; classroom processes and dynamics; sexual and gender diversity in the classroom; gender and sexual violence in schools and colleges; and bullying, victimization, and abuse. Special attention is also given to new and enduring topics in the area of education and sexuality, such as the perennial discussions about the content and context of sexualities education, and the age at which it should take place; faith and religion; politics and political controversies; and the science and ethics of sexualities education. With a comprehensive introduction written by the Peter Aggleton, alongside section introductions prepared by well known scholars within the field, "Education and Sexualities "is an key addition to Routledge s Major Themes in Education series. It is destined to be valued by educationalists and scholars working in related areas as a vital one-stop research tool."

Gendering Women is an engaging and accessible account of how constructions of femininity fundamentally affect women's mental wellbeing through the life course. Led by women’s life history accounts of growing up and growing older in the north of England, this book shows how experiences of becoming and being a woman – in family life, education, employment, motherhood and situations of violence – both enable and erode self confidence and esteem. The challenges to women’s mental wellbeing cut across age and class differences and have profound impacts on the material conditions of women’s lives throughout the life course. This is in turn a driver of inequality that is often under-recognised in mainstream policy. Based on feminist and ethnographically informed research with over five hundred women Gendering women provides a critical link between gender theory and the lived realities of women’s daily lives and will appeal to students and academics in sociology and social sciences.

Originally published in 1985. This book describes the Girls Into Science and Technology (GIST) Project, an action research programme carried out in co-educational comprehensive schools in Greater Manchester. GIST simultaneously took action to redress the balance of girls in science and technology and investigated the reasons for the shortfall. The book highlights the world of the typical school science lab and craft workshop where boys and girls compete with each other and teachers treat the two sexes differently. It reveals how boys and girls view science and sex roles and how their attitudes changed during the course of the project. The GIST team worked with science and craft teachers to alter school factors which discourage girls from continuing with scientific and technical subjects. The author describes the reactions of teachers and pupils to intervention strategies, which included visits to schools by women working in technical jobs, development of teaching material more orientated towards girls’ interests and a humanistic view of science, observations in school labs and workshops, and careers education linked to option choices in school. In the final chapters she spells out the lessons to be learned for teachers and those engaged in training, and evaluates the national impact of the GIST project.

From ‘Aggressive Masculinity’ to ‘Rape Culture’ is the fifth volume in this series and explores the relationship between gender and sex roles and socialisation and education, foregrounding issues of inequity and different forms of oppression in various contexts. It tells a rich story of transformation of a field over nearly half a century, in relation to the theorisation of gender and sexuality in educational philosophy and theory. The transformation of this field is mapped on to broader social trends during the same period, enabling a better understanding of the potential role of educational philosophy and theory in developing feminist, queer, and related veins of scholarship in the future. The collection of texts focuses on a wide range of topics, including nature versus nurture and the debate over whether gender and sex roles are natural or based upon culture and socialisation, gender and sexual binaries, and how power is organised and circulates within educational spaces (including possibly online spaces) with regard to enabling or disrupting sexually oppressive or violently gendered social conditions. Other important trends include Internet activism and the use of intersectional theory, postcolonial theory, and global studies approaches. From ‘Aggressive Masculinity’ to ‘Rape Culture’ will be key reading for academics, researchers and postgraduate students in the fields of philosophy of education, philosophy, education, educational theory, post-structural theory, the policy and politics of education, and the pedagogy of education.
