The article elaborates on the links between low participation of women in the Polish public sphere and processes of communication, education and socialisation. Drawing on my earlier research on women in the Polish media, I analyse diverse gender roles constructed discursively in handbooks for first, second and third grade pupils of Polish elementary schools. The schoolbooks are treated here as key tools in educating future participants of the public sphere whose ‘preferences, values and standpoints – of consumers and citizens – are created in the earlier processes of education’ (Jürgen Habermas). Analysing the schoolbooks, I point to the links between the processes of socialisation (and communication of gender roles – in private and public life – via schoolbooks and other teaching materials), the social construction of gender identities and the reasons of the still very low participation of women in the Polish public sphere.
