Guidelines for Promoting Gender Equity in Higher Education in Central and Eastern Europe. Papers on Higher Education.
This book provides a practically oriented reflection on gender equity in higher education and offers insights on how to achieve such equity. Equity, rather than "equality," is the focus of the discussion, which refines the discussion of gender and higher education to go beyond traditional ideas of equal provision and the mathematical equality of outcomes. The discussion includes equal treatment or treatment that is different but considered equivalent in terms of rights, benefits, and opportunities. Recommendations are made for developing, implementing, and monitoring gender sensitive policies in higher education. The chapters are: (1) "Key Concepts of Gender Equity"; (2) "Normative Provisions for the Promotion of Gender Equity in Higher Education"; (3) "Gender Particularities in Post-Communist Transitions"; (4) "Gender Inequity and Policies for Gender Equity in Higher Education"; and (5) "The role of Gender Studies in Promoting Gender Equity in Higher Education." (Contains 33 references.) (SLD)
