Women, Literacy and Citizenship: A Critique
Rogers, Alan
International Review of Education, v53 n2 p159-181 Mar 2007
This paper examines the recent increase in the concern of adult literacy for citizenship, especially aimed at women in developing societies. It looks at what is happening in this field and why; it examines some of the critiques of this range of activity; and it suggests some alternatives which in the end may be more effective in promoting both literacy learning and the practices of citizenship among women.
