Abstract

In, Postfeminist Education?, Jessica Ringrose (2013) powerfully illustrates how postfeminist media discourses have infiltrated Western educational policy and curricula. Ringrose’s book contributes significantly to the field of curriculum studies for the ways that she knits postfeminist media exemplars, poststructural and (post) psychosocial theory, and educational policy together to demonstrate the shortcomings in current policies and practices that shape girls’ experiences in school.
