In this period, the Victorian concept of gender was under construction. Social and sexual stability was expected to provide a foundation for national identity. This book analyses the interrelation of gender and class with national identity, offering a study of girls' schooling in Britain and Ireland. The study covers England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales, and examines the regional and local differences that arise.
