After more than twenty years of feminist education research, policy development and innovative school practice, it seems appropriate to evaluate the impact and significance of this world wide struggle for social justice in education. At the same time, the recent restructuring of educational provision whether in the name of sexual equality or the ideologies of the New Right also requires a considered response from Those Committed To Promoting Greater Social Equality.; This Collection offers a unique opportunity to host an international forum on contemporary thinking and practice, not just within different national contexts, but for feminism more generally. ln adopting a critical feminist approach, the chapters re-establish such egalitarian traditions as radical feminism, black feminism and socialist feminism and address such themes as the interrelation between social class, race and gender and the ways these articulate with feminist educational practice.; In gathering together leading educators from five different countries all committed to the project of social transformation, this book represents the shifting concerns of the feminist theoretical debate and helps formulate feminist educational agendas more suited to the political and economic conditions which orevail in the 19905.
