The Miseducation of Women

by

The Miseducation of Women Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Girls and boys are different. So why do our schools insist on treating them as identical? Could this misguided equality have anything to do with the increasing dissatisfaction among women that is revealed in survey after survey? Do gender-blind educational policies in fact work to women's disadvantage? 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. The Miseducation of Women landed like a bombshell when it was published in England a few months ago; but Mr. Tooley's book, replete with examples and anecdotes from the United States as well as Great Britain, has equal application to the gender arguments on this side of the Atlantic.

Book News Annotation:

Tooley (education policy, U. of Newcastle upon Tyne) argues that for the past three or four decades, women have been convinced to seek fulfillment in the marketplace and public arena, and therefore suffer dissatisfaction and yearning for family and home life. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
