Women's Ways of Knowing: Significant New Research on Women's Cognitive Development (1989)

Women's Education des femmes, 1979-1989 - Vol. 7, No. 2

In this article, the author talks abut the book, Women's Ways of Knowing, by Mary Field Belenky et al. Feminists have long contended that women learn differently than men and have special learning needs which the education system by and large fails to address. The groundbreaking research carried out and reported by the authors of this book validates this contention. In it, they set out a theoretical structure of women's cognitive development along with proposals for practices to help women develop their intellectual capacities.
