Stalker, Joyce
Adult Education Quarterly, v51 n4 p288-305 Aug 2001
Interviews with 18 women enrolled in postsecondary education used a framework of misogyny to reinterpret barriers to their participation Resulting themes included women's role in maintaining the home as sanctuary, women needing constraint, and men's role as suppressors. Results suggest how a theory based in misogyny can explain obstacles to women's participation in higher education. (Contains 73 references.) (SK)
