This original book contributes significantly to an understanding of sexism by revealing a major arena for its formation - the play practices of children. This is the first sociological work to use children's drawings to make inferences about structured gender inequality. The author examines the situation in both capitalist and socialist societies, and provides specific strategies for restructuring children's play to counter gender-based inequalities. Samples of the children's art are supplied, in colour and in black and white.
