Women, Education, Equality: A Decade of Experiment.
United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Paris (France).
The present brochure is intended to inform the general public of aspects of Unesco's operational activities on the occasion of International Women's Year. Three experimental projects demonstrate possible ways of integrating women into development through the channel of education. The results of these experiments in equality permit a preliminary evaluation of the strengths and weaknesses of the approaches so far tested which may in turn open perspectives on future action in other contexts. This brochure considers the three projects both descriptively and analytically. The first part deals with the origins, major objectives, and implementation of each. The second part is devoted to an analysis of the experience acquired in the projects in relation to three major problem areas. The brochure is intended to inform and to provoke reflection on possible forms of effective action, applicable in other contexts, to promote equality of educational opportunity for women. (Author)
