Young people not only develop diverse concepts of femininity and masculinity at school, they also arrange them in a hierarchical order. This leads to privileges, discrimination and exclusion. This book shows the means by which a gender order is negotiated among young people at school, which on the one hand testifies to a large variety of gender concepts, but on the other hand is the result of a standardization based on social stereotypes. The author bases his theses on observations and interviews from two field studies in Central America and repeatedly allows the students to have their say. The detailed analysis of the behavior and attitudes of young people enables the readers to sharpen their awareness of gender-specific discrimination and thus to consciously behave towards gender discrimination in concrete life situations, not only at school. The book is not only aimed at educational scientists, but also at everyone else who deals with young people professionally or privately.
