As a child I loved acting, singing and painting; I was made to feel like the odd one out in my school; a highly competitive, all-boys' school. I felt the issue but the other way around. It is why I think that this book is so important. We must all pay attention and take action so that all of our children achieve their potential and follow their dreams no matter what their gender. --Dr Richard Gerver, Author & Speaker, expert in Human Leadership
An important book that looks at how gender inequality in society can affect the classroom - and offers clear thinking on what teachers can do about it. --Darren Chetty, Teacher & Writer, Doctoral Candidate at UCL IoE
This book will really open the eyes for many to gender gap issues: where it starts, the roles we all play and most importantly how we can change it. --Claire Young, Founder of School Speakers, Apprentice Finalist 2008

The personal narrative that runs throughout the book is inspiring-I would have Anderton (and McGill) as teachers in any of my schools. This is an engaging and accessible academic read on the complex issue surrounding gender issues in education that chimes well with experienced practitoners like me but should be essential reading for those who are stepping into our classrooms for the first time. As Anderson suggests in her final quotation from Indiana Jones ‘It’s time to ask yourself what your believe’ I believe this is a great book, well worth the money and a vital contribution to an ever changing debate on how we ensure gender equality in our classrooms and society.
I lead an R&D group each year so I’ve decided to focus it on gender this year and it’ll certainly be a book I’ll point them to
