In school, girls are taught to fit in. This video looks at how in classrooms, on the playground, at lunch, and even in the bathroom, girls learn how to behave, what to wear, what to say, and what to study. They learn the rules, and they learn how to break the rules. In this mix, girls confront what society expects from them. Like anyone being “schooled,” girls talk back. Learn more in the Girlhood (It’s complicated) online exhibition section on Education (Being Schooled).
