It took such tragedies as the Columbine killings to wake the nation up to the problems inherent in bullying and harassment in our nation's schools. Since then there has been a steadily growing literature on the subject of preventing and treating such destructive behaviors. Now advancing the subject is the publication of "Gender, Bullying, And Harassment: Strategies To End Sexism And Homophobia In Schools" by Elizabeth J. Meyer (a McGill University instructor and a researcher at the Centre for the Study of Learning and Performance at Concordia University, Montreal, Quebec) specifically addresses the role that gender and gender identification play in school-based bullying. Examining the effects of gender on bullying and harassment, especially with respect to creating a climate for such abuse, along with the legal implications of such gender-based hostilities, "Gender, Bullying, And Harassment" is enhanced with the inclusion of resource lists, a glossary, extensive references, and an index. More than just a clarion denunciation of gender-based bullying, Elizabeth Meyers also provides recommendations for effectively transforming school cultures. Informed and informative, "Gender, Bullying, And Harassment" is especially recommended to the attention of teachers, counselors, student leaders, administrators, school board members, community activists, and concerned parents.

I love this little book! It was based on the author's doctoral dissertation titled "Gendered harassment in secondary schools: Understanding teachers' perceptions of and responses to the problem" of McGill University (2007). However it's totally condensed and rewritten so that it is very readable, even for non-academics. The book emphasizes the gender aspects of the bullying behaviors that connects to sexism and homophobia. Most mainstream bullying theories and intervention protocols ignore the subtle (in fact, it's very obvious once you are gender-sensitive or gender-aware) gender dynamics in most bullying incidents. "Bullying is gendered" does not mean that all bullying behaviors are done by boys and towards girls, however it suggests that bullying are built upon the discourses of misogyny (hatred of women) and homonegativity (prejudice towards LGBT people) that is power-based, involves oppression, and has its roots in societal and cultural systems. So bullying may happen between any two or more people of any gender or sexual orientation, but it's still "gendered." I hope all researchers and clinicians concerned about bullying prevention can read this wonderful book!

Read this for a class; its a tiny little book that gives an overview for teachers on the various problems inherent in overcoming these sort of bullying. It talks about the need for community involvement and ways to 'nudge' recalcitrant school officials past their own prejudices. I would suggest as a good FIRST reading, but in some ways its a little too shallow to be truly useful, but is a good first read for the teacher who wants to help but hasn't a clue what to do about it.
