The following nine chapters are included: (1) "Women's Learning: A Kaleidoscope" (Daniele D. Flannery, Elisabeth Hayes); (2) "Social Contexts" (Elisabeth Hayes); (3) "Identity and Self-Esteem" (Daniele D. Flannery); (4) "Voice" (Elisabeth Hayes); "Connection" (Daniele D. Flannery); (6) "Transformation" (Ann K. Brooks); (7) "Feminist Pedagogies" (Elizabeth J. Tisdell); (8) "Perspectives on Practice" (Jane M.
