And when She Comes Home? Education and Women's Empowerment in Intimate Relationships
Murphy-Graham, Erin
International Journal of Educational Development, v30 n3 p320-331 May 2010
While previous research has focused on the relationship between education and women's empowerment in the public sphere, their empowerment in the private sphere has been less fully developed in empirical studies. Drawing on a theoretical model of change in marital relationships, this article examines how women who participated in an innovative secondary education program in rural Honduran Garifuna communities were able to negotiate more equitable roles in their intimate relationships. (Contains 2 figures and 1 table.)
