The Politics of women's education : perspectives from Asia, Africa, and Latin America by Jill K Conway( Book )

14 editions published between 1993 and 1996 in English and held by 500 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the last twenty-five years women have made remarkable progress in access to the classroom and broken new ground in educational opportunity, yet educational equity remains elusive and politically contested. THE POLITICS OF WOMEN'S EDUCATION: PERSPECTIVES FROM ASIA, AFRICA, AND LATIN AMERICA collects essays that reveal the complex changes in women's education throughout the world and together offer the first comprehensive assessment of what has been attempted, what remains to be done, and what the options are for reform. The volume presents the voices of Third World women and men relating their efforts to improve the position of women through education. They raise important questions for readers from both high- and low-income countries, questions about whether formal or nonformal education will best serve women's needs; whether the state or private initiatives are most likely to succeed in raising women's status through the delivery of transforming knowledge; and whether Western dreams of modernization have any relevance to non-Western societies. A diversity of countries is covered, including India, Pakistan, Korea, the Philippines, Kenya, Zimbabwe, Mexico, Peru, and Brazil. Each contributor locates the issues surrounding women's education in the larger national context, thus unraveling the matrix that links gender and education to race, ethnicity, social class, and political change. Two essays offer analysis of the worldwide movement for women's education from a comparative perspective and raise fundamental questions about the relevance of the educational models, approaches, and assumptions currently in use

This collection is the author's distillation of women's experience from the British Commonwealth world, compared with major themes in women's lives in the United States.

The worlds of politics and private self intersect in the four offshoots of the former British Empire, where these women have made a difference through their honesty, their struggle for self-knowledge and autonomy, and their writing
