This paper attends to some of the issues surrounding the controversial topic of the education of boys in Australian schools. It particularly focuses upon two questions: 'Are boys victims of feminism in schools?' and 'Are boys victims of their emotions?' In answering both questions, the authors draw from empirical studies that enquire into gender reform in schools and girls' and boys' responses to it. Generally, the paper makes the case for a pedagogy of the emotions in the context of gender education in schools.
