Publisher's description: Why do girls study art and why do girls become primary teachers? This book examines and reveals the powerful influence of the family, the school and the state in shaping female identity and constructing notions of gender appropriateness. As part of this focus, it also discusses the status of art at school in comparison with science and maths and the position of women artists in society. It considers if Art Education may be complicit in the failure of many artistically girls to fully exploit their talent as potential artists.
