Gender, education, and training
Gender, Education and Training looks at the imbalance in educational participation among women and men, and reflects on its causes and consequences. Some papers offer solutions, for example; gender-awareness training for teachers in Nepal, and an approach to adult literacy training which promotes gender equality. Others look at education as an empowering process, highlighting the problem that too often the formal education system serves merely to confirm gender stereotypes, and school women for subordination. Equally important, the book looks at education outside the formal system, including a description of the use of a range of public education approaches to challenge harmful traditional practices, including female genital mutilation, in Ethiopia. No other books in this field look at issues of education and training together; this book also takes a valuable overview of both women and girls. This volume will be of interest to students and academics in the field of development studies, women's studies and education, as well as to development practitioners.
