Granstam, Ingrid, Ed.; Frostfeldt, Inger, Ed.
This document is a report of the European and Third World Gender and Science and Technology (GASAT) conference. Formal papers and other activities during the conference were divided into four Frames. Frame 1 deals with problems, constraints, methods, and questions at the primary and secondary level in school with the most important focus being girls in school. Frame 2 includes contributions from the upper secondary level to higher education levels at the college and university level. It also includes teacher-training issues and students' attitudes to technology and industry. The focus of Frame 3 is women in the workplace. Issues included are opportunities for women, conditions of working, and career development. The problems and opportunities in developing countries are discussed in this frame. Papers that are in some way relevant to other frames are included in Frame 4. These papers have been grouped separately and raise ethical, moral, philosophical and methodological issues. Some of the speeches and the plenary sessions from the four Frames are included in this document. There are also samples from some of the round table discussions, workshops, and symposia. (KR)
