Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book grounds the education of women and girls in the realities of their lives and experience in diverse areas of the developing world. The case studies range from the Arakambut of Peru to the changing experience of racialized education in South Africa. The contributors take issue with the World Banks view that the education of girls and women is important primarily as a cost-effective mechanism for making women more economically productive.
