Editorial Review

“ As a woman working in a male dominated profession where practices of sexism and verbal abuse towards women go unchecked, I believe this book illuminates the space where this behaviour first starts to play out. The manner in which men are allowed to exercise their privilege and power over women and girls in form of abuse, bullying and harassment stem from systems which have allowed it since their childhood. The school environment is one of the most influential systems which gives way to saying “boys will be boys” and excuses boys exercise of harmful attitudes and behaviours towards women and girls. Therefore as highlighted in this book, school settings serve as important spaces to inculcate and demonstrate gender equitable attitudes in the way they address issues such as bullying of girls by boys, which in turn will positively influence boy’s practices and behaviours towards women when they reach adulthood.”
