A commitment to gender equity is now a commonplace ideal, but the bridge between ideal and achievement has yet to be crossed. To do that, we must imagine what a just and equitable world might be and discover what practices might bring it about. "Shards of Glass" is a study of the texts people produce about - and from - gendered childhoods. Concepts from post-structuralist theory are drawn on to allow a different way of reading, seeing and understanding gender. Following her book "Frogs and Snails and Feminist Tales" Bronwyn Davies here works with primary school children, some of whom were previously interviewed, to form a longitudinal study. This is supplemented by interview and readings with children in a US primary school.
