Just Like a Girl is a piece of research conducted by Sue Sharpe (1972,1994) on girls' expectations while at school.
-Girls in the 1990s still expected to undertake 'women's work' (e.g. health and clerical work) despite increasing structural unemployment and available training schemes; due to this expectation girls had little incentive to achieve high educational standards.
-Career was on the bottom of the list of Girl's priorities; love and marriage were at the top.
-While few girls identified themselves as feminists, they expected husbands to be 'new men' helping them with housework and childcare.
