Researching Women: An Annotated Bibliography on Gender Equity in Commonwealth Higher Education
Morley, Louise; Sorhaindo, Annik; Burke, Penny Jane
Institute of Education - London
This annotated bibliography documents the wealth of scholarship on gender and higher education in the Commonwealth, particularly in low-income countries. It contains the texts that do not reach the public domain, including conference papers, seminar papers and MA and doctoral theses. The aim is to present as full a picture as possible of issues, debates and concerns that have arisen over the past ten years. The bibliography originated in the Gender Equity in Commonwealth Higher Education Research Project. While there is literature on girls and education in low-income countries, there is little material published about women's experiences of higher education, despite the research on gender equity in higher education across the Commonwealth. "Researching Women" addresses this lack by describing the location and reviewing the content of writing from Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, Australasia and the UK. As such, it should be a valuable resource for gender scholars who are interested in international patterns and interventions for gender equity in higher education.
