Just Like a Girl is a piece of research conducted by Sue Sharpe (1972,1994) on girls' expectations while at school.

Key findings Edit

-Girls in the 1990s still expected to undertake 'women's work' (e.g. health and clerical work) despite increasing structural unemployment and available training schemes; due to this expectation girls had little incentive to achieve high educational standards.

-Career was on the bottom of the list of Girl's priorities; love and marriage were at the top.

-While few girls identified themselves as feminists, they expected husbands to be 'new men' helping them with housework and childcare.

Methodology Edit

Case studies of girls in various levels of education
