"...underrepresentation of women is clearly evident in all the textbooks and across all subjects. there has been little effor to depict women in non-traditional roles, or to portray them as capable of making choices. The textbooks are replete with tradtional meanings of masculine and feminine."

How does this translate in the U.S.? Subjects offered: Economics
Political Science
Geography It should be noted that girls had a higher interest in Hindi, English, and arts; boys had a larger interest in math, science, and history Other differences between boys and girls: Boys were encouraged to explore secondary education after primary schooling. Girls' primary reason for schooling was to get a good husband after primary school. If boys fail an annual examination, they are encouraged to try again.
