Overview

Challenging Lesbian and Gay Inequalities in Education is an essential addition to the library of anyone concerned about developing education for social justice and about challenging inequalities in society. Through a series of historically-located articles ranging from personal stories, through examples of 'good practice', to theoretical analysis of the interweaving of heterosexism, sexism and racism, the book traces the ways in which these oppressions are constructed and played out within and through the system of schooling and through education policies. The majority of contributors to the book are lesbian or gay activists and educators. The book will be of interest to all those involved in the education system and in studying education, and to those interested in cultural studies, gender and the study of masculinity, lesbian and gay studies, sociology and women's studies.
