United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization, Paris (France).
This monograph includes the final report of the International Expert Meeting on the Promotion of Equal Access of Girls and Women to Technical and Vocational Education (TVE) held in Seoul, Republic of Korea, and country discussion papers. The final report is composed of an introduction that proposes that many Member States require special measures to ensure genuine equality of opportunity for males and females; description of the opening ceremony; and "Synthesis of the Country Experience" that highlights patterns that emerged. "Discussion on the Major Issues" separates strategies for future actions into four areas: TVE aspects of general education; TVE and training as preparation for an occupation; TVE as continuing education; and employment and social environment. A "Statement for the Beijing Conference" is followed by a participant list. The 14 country discussion papers submitted by participants describe "Promotion of the Equal Access of Girls and Women to Technical and Vocational Education" in each country. The countries and authors are as follows: Botswana (Marianne Nganunu); Kenya (B. Wanjala Kerre); Australia (Miriam Daley); China (Yu Zu-Guang); India (Arun Mishra and others); Japan (Suzuko Oki); Malaysia (Maimunah Ismail); Republic of Korea (Young-Hwa Kim); Czech Republic (Fratisek Bartak); Germany (Helga Foster, Angelika Puhlmann); Sweden (Nils Friberg, Marianne Lindberg); Turkey (Saban Yildirim); Argentina (Irma C.
