Literacy and Gender (1996)

In this item the writer explores: the lack of focus on women in the approaches to adult literacy programs and in literacy literature; the learner-centred approach—what might benefit some may not benefit others; studies that have suggested that women learn in particular ways; family literacy programs, to see what messages they give to women about women's roles; inequalities taken for granted in women's lives and issues of power; violence in women's lives and its relevance to literacy programming for women; literacy teaching as 'women's work' and the significance of this.
