Aneja, Anu – Gender and Education, 2017
Distance education's mandate to expand outreach to those with limited access to higher education makes it a particularly welcome mode for non-traditional women learners. Feminist pedagogy, which has tended to privilege the classroom space in the learning experience, has stopped short of a wholehearted acceptance of distance education which relies…

Vivakaran, Mangala Vadivu; Maraimalai, Neelamalar – Gender and Education, 2017
The Constitution of India ensures equal treatment to all its citizens without any discrimination. On the contrary, the patriarchal roots of the Indian society have subjected women to experience severe inequalities.

Spitzer-Hanks, D. T. – Gender and Education, 2016
In a period characterised by worries over the rise of the corporate university, it is important to ask what role feminism plays in the academy, and whether that role is commensurate with feminist values and ethics.

Hansen, Marie – Gender and Education, 2016
Despite the fact that feminism has recognised psychoanalysis to be a theory with direct application to the understanding of sexism for over 50 years, the application of psychoanalytic thinking to feminist activism has yet to be significantly realised. Using the work of Julia Kristeva, sexism is described as a symptom of an intolerable situation…

Charles, Marilyn – Gender and Education, 2016
I situate myself in the context of an evolving conversation in relation to what it means to be a woman. In my mother's generation, the first wave of feminism forced a collision between traditional western female values grounded in a subversive authority and the desire to emerge from that type of repressive position. From the standpoint of my…
