Gender and Physical Education offers a critical and comprehensive commentary on issues relating to gender in PE and teacher education. The book challenges our understandings of gender, equity and identity in PE, establishing a conceptual and historical foundation for the issue, as well as presenting a wealth of original research material.

The book delivers a critical analysis of the progress and shortcomings pf contemporary policies and practice in PE as they relate to gender, and reflects on the similarities and differences between developments in the UK, US and Australia. It also offers a new framework for research, policy and practice with a view to advancing gender equity, and addresses the roles that teachers, educators and policy makers can play in challenging existing inequalities.

Gender and Physical Education is important reading for students and lecturers in education, teacher educators and providers of continuing professional development in PE, and anybody concerned with gender issues in education, PE or sport.
