Cambria Press Review

Congratulations to Dr. Kho Ee Moi of the National Institute of Education (Singapore) on the outstanding review of her book, The Construction of Femininity in a Postcolonial State: Girls’ Education in Singapore, by the journal Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education.

The book review states: “Kho examines issues of gender equality with a penetrating and critical eye. In this study, she explores the contradictions over time of the goevernment’s socialization goals and in the messages they sought to send about what it means to be a female in Singapore. … Readers interested in the role of schools in constructing ideology, as well as those interested in the development of Singapore, will find this an engaging and well-written book.”
