Women's Studies in England: Mature Women Students and Their Educational Vision.
Maher, F. A.
Gender and Education, v13 n1 p7-23 Mar 2001
Examines the attitudes of mature British women's studies students, exploring personal meanings given to education and kinds of knowledge appropriated. Their perspectives reveal dichotomies taken for granted throughout the university (experience versus theory and research versus teaching) which are structurally embedded in the current practices of higher education. These socially constructed ideological devices continue to marginalize certain groups. (SM)
