wac-web-1Parents choose a girls’ school for a range of reasons. Instinctively, perhaps, they know that a community of girls is the best context in which their daughter can become all she can be. We now have data showing that girls are more likely to exercise a greater range of career choices, including those traditionally dominated by males, if they are educated in a single-sex school. This is because a single-sex environment discourages gender stereotypes and attenuates gender identity for girls. (M Favara: 2012) This research outcome is great news for girls’ schools, demonstrating that our instincts are correct after all!
