These two volumes set out to challenge the traditional power basis of the policy decision makers in education. They contest that others who have an equal right to be consulted and have their opinions known have been silenced, declared irrelevant, postponed and otherwise ignored. Policies have thus been formed without any feminist critical glance. These two volumes focus on those areas that have been silenced and identify the tools and theories for dismantling and replacing politics, theories and modes of policy analysis that have created the situation. The chapters illustrate how and why it will open up the area to wider scrutiny and to incorporate critical and feminist lenses and thus create policies to meet the lived realities, needs, aspirations and values of women and girls.
