The Significance of the Learning Society for Women and Men with Learning Difficulties.
Riddell, Sheila; Baron, Stephen; Wilson, Alastair
Gender and Education, v13 n1 p57-73 Mar 2001
Discusses the gendered experiences and lifelong learning opportunities of people with learning difficulties (LD). Notes theories of late modernity, their use by feminist and disability studies theorists, and their relationship to a learning society. Using case studies, argues that the identities of people with LD are not chosen freely from many options but are socially ascribed. (SM)
