This paper investigates representations of gender in a contemporary EFL textbook using content and linguistic analysis frameworks. Although there is evidence of progress, it is shown that even a relatively modern textbook can display regressive attitudes towards women in particular. This should hardly be surprising, as a review of the literature reveals prevailing gender-bias in EFL and ESL textbooks. However, it is argued that this type of textbook analysis, popular amongst researchers, may be an inadequate approach to raising awareness of gender-bias issues. Previous calls to focus on teacher and student mediation of the text have been overlooked in favour of more standard textual analysis. Ultimately, it is argued that a new approach is required, one which investigates how textbooks are used rather than their inherent qualities
