    Description

    altWomen’s Studies Quarterly, 32 (1 & 2), Edited by Mev Miller, Founder of WE LEARN with Ilene Alexander, The Feminist Press at CUNY, 1558614729, 2004.

    In this volume, researchers raise significant questions about literacy and women, identity, and power. Both U.S. and international perspectives are represented through essays, personal accounts, and poetry illuminating common frustrations and accomplishments shared by adult women learners and practitioners around the world. The contributors also reveal contradictions inherent in literacy programs as governmental pressures threaten women’s ability to experience their education as anything other than preparation for employment and as women’s need for appropriate, relevant learning materials continues to grow. Complete with an annotated bibliography of important resources, this comprehensive study of literacy education and women is as invaluable as it is timely.
