Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0807749532, Paperback)

''In this smart, brave book Elizabeth Meyer speaks clearly and sensibly about differences that make a difference in children's school lives.''
-- From the Foreword by Lyn Mikel Brown, Professor of Education, Colby College; author of Girfighting

''Bullying and harassment remain serious impediments to learning for far too many students. In this thoughtful book, Dr. Meyer helps readers understand why this troubling behavior occurs and persists, and offers clear and easy-to-implement action steps for both individuals and institutions that are truly committed to creating environments where everyone can learn.''
-- Kevin Jennings, Founder, The Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN)

''In an accessible, yet theoretically sound manner, Meyer creates a discourse which defines, identifies, and mentors us in tackling the insidious affects of bullying and harassment.''
-- Shirley R. Steinberg, Academic Director, The Paulo and Nita Freire International Project for Critical Pedagogy

''Meyer's work moves the bullying discussion far beyond worry, fear, and ignorance--she demands that we contextually understand both the cause and effects involved in this societal ill, then instructs us in efforts to end it.''
-- Joe L. Kincheloe, Canada Research Chair, McGill University

While there have been countless studies of bullying and harassment in schools, none have examined the key gender issues related to these behaviors. In her new book, Meyer does just that and offers readers tangible and flexible suggestions to help them positively transform the culture of their school and reduce the incidences of gendered harassment. The text features sections that speak specifically to administrators, teachers, counselors, student leaders, and community and family members.

Integrating research, theory, and practical ideas connected to issues of sex, gender, sexual orientation, bullying, and harassment, this timely book:
* Defines important terms, such as bullying, (hetero)sexual harassment, sexual-orientation harassment, and harassment because of gender nonconformity.
* Provides an easy-to-read overview of the legal issues involved in addressing gender and harassment in schooling.
* Offers an annotated list of educational resources on homophobia, sexual harassment, and bullying, as well as a detailed checklist of steps to aid educators reduce gendered harassment in their schools.
