Originally published in 1996. This volume brings together articles by Gail Paradise Kelly spanning a twenty-year period. It represents an aspect of the history of the feminist movement as related to education. Early articles from 1970 onwards consider experiences of the students’ campus feminist movement of the late ‘60s and then move on to focus on education of women in the Third World. Some co-authored articles are included which looked at school process and directions for research. As a whole the articles input to the discussion on how to study education and its meaning in society, with particular reference to feminist thinking.
