Taking Care of Literacy: One Feminist's Critique.
Luttrell, Wendy
Educational Policy, v10 n3 p342-65 Sep 1996
Shows how gender assumptions and inequalities influence how we define the literacy problem, value literacy skills, and perceive relations between adult literacy learners and teachers. Draws on various sources to describe and critique the gendered cornerstones of literacy education, focusing on how women's literacy activities become devalued and depoliticized. The politics of caregiving must be subverted. (91 references) (MLH)
