Abstract

This chapter discusses efforts to redress the gender imbalance in services for children and young people, posing the question as to why there has been so much emphasis in recent years on recruiting more men to work with children, and offering a critical examination of the ‘male role model’ rhetoric that has been influential in debates around this issue. The chapter calls for a more critical understanding of how gender comes into play in work with children.
