Summary
  • "This book examines the variations in the constitution of female gender in a group of young working-class women of African American, Latina, U.S., Puerto Rican, and white European backgrounds who are enrolled in alternative high school for students at risk of academic failure. It then analyzes the school processes that impact the shaping of the young women's gender identities and provides evidence that female gender identity among various racial or ethnic backgrounds can be very dissimilar
  • It also illustrates the enormous power of schools to re-orient young women who have previous experiences of academic failure to view education as crucial to attaining their future goals."--Jacket
