Additional Information: The paper draws on data from a study of gender segregation in the labour market funded by the Equal Opportunities Commission to concdptualise the different ways in which teenagers in school perceive their post-school and labour market futures. The paper argues that young people appear to retreat to the safety of stereotypical views of gendered futures due to the woeful lack of careers education and guidance and the lack of opportunities to discuss and debate equality issues in and outside school.
