The Role of Gender Consciousness in Challenging Patriarchy.
Bierema, Laura L.
International Journal of Lifelong Education, v22 n1 p3-12 Jan-Feb 2003
In an action research project, eight women explored their development of gender consciousness, finding that a hidden curriculum taught subordination to the patriarchal system. Connected learning fostered gender consciousness and led to connected action. Action included teaching others about gender issues, making the invisible visible, and adopting a strategy weighing the personal costs of action. (Contains 29 references.) (SK)
