Abstract

Whilst campaigners have justifiably concerned themselves with increasing young girls’ participation in STEM, an equally important equality issue has thus far been overlooked. There has been little to no interest in promoting young boys’ participation in traditionally ‘feminine’ subjects and careers, like the Arts, Literature, Nursing, Early Years Education, and the creative industries.
