If Men Are The Problem Are Women the Answer?

Posted on June 18th, 2018 by

We have all fallen into the trap of thinking that the way men behave is the norm, the way it has to be. The male yardstick.

No More Boys and Girls was a fascinating BBC documentary on gender bias in an Isle of Wight school which aired in the summer of 2017. I interviewed the teacher involved, Graham Andre, at the time, and some months on I have spoken with him to see what he thinks, if anything, has changed
