This research examines student subcultures with a gender perspective, using the ethnographic approach on a girls' high school. In this paper I call subcultures studied with gender frameworks in mind "gendered subcultures". In the first part, I briefly review traditional subculture studies and school organization studies which have overlooked such aspects as gender roles and femininity and masculinity. I also review the debate about single sex education v. s. co-education. This debate focuses on sexism within schools and subcultures related to girls' academic achievement. In contrast, this research focuses on femininity and gender roles as aspects of gendered subcultures. In the second part, the research, focusing on femininity of girls, shows that, within a girls' high school, there are gendered subcultures free from femininity, peculiar to a single sex school, but that they both accommodate and resist femininity out of school. It is confirmed that femininity is not fixed but changing.
