It is commonly accepted that masculinities cannot be fully understood without attending to their relationship to femininities within the broader scope of patriarchy. It is therefore important to identify the sorts of femininities which unwittingly underwrite hegemonic masculinity. The literature suggests that this particular version of femininity involves compliance and service, subservience and self-sacrifice and constant accommodating to the needs and desires of males. This indicates that anti-violence education is not a boys’ only matter.

Anyon has pointed out that resistance to the ideology of femininity ‘is often a defensive action (no matter how creative) that is aimed not at transforming patriarchal or other social structures, but at gaining a measure of protection within these’. Hargreaves (1982) has pointed to the problem of discriminating between actions which challenge social relations, and those which merely represent a negative response to education. Aggleton and Whitty (1985), in an interesting discussion of middle-class children’s ‘resistance’ to schooling, maintain that a distinction must be made between individualised contestation and effective resistance to prevailing patterns of class and gender relations.
