The Politics of women's education : perspectives from Asia, Africa, and Latin America by Jill K Conway( Book )
11 editions published between 1993 and 1996 in English and held by 507 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 collection is comprised of the accounts of twelve women, from Shirley Chisholm, the West Indian-raised girl who became the first black woman to be elected to the U.S. Congress, to Janet Frame, the New Zealand writer who overcame involuntary treatment in a mental institution to write one of the archetypal analyses of the postcolonial experience. 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

A woman's education by Jill K Conway( Book )
8 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in English and held by 67 libraries worldwide
The acclaimed author of the best-selling The Road from Coorain and True North now gives us the third book in her remarkable continuing memoir'describing the pleasures, the challenges, and the constant surprises (good and bad) of her years as the first woman president of Smith College. The story opens in 1973 as Conway, unbeknownst to her, is first "looked over" as a prospective candidate by members of the Smith community, and continues as she assesses her passions and possibilities and agrees to the new challenge of heading the college in 1975. The jolt of energy she gets from being surrounded by several thousand young women enables her to take on the difficulties that arise in dealing with the diverse Smith constituencies'from the self-appointed protectors of the great male tradition of humanistic learning to the equally determined young feminists insisting on change. We see Conway juggling the needs and concerns of faculty, students, parents, trustees, and alumnae, and re-defining and redesigning aspects of the college to create programs in line with the new realities of women's lives. We sense the urgency of her efforts to shape an institution that will attract students of the 1990s and beyond. Through it all we see Jill Ker Conway coping with her husband's illness, and learning to protect and sustain her inner self. As the end of a decade at Smith approaches, we see her realizing that she has both had her education and made her contributions, and that it is time now for her to graduate.
