A Gender Perspective on Educational Facilities
Lang, Sara
CELE Exchange, Article 10 Jul 2010
This article explores how to adopt a gender perspective in the analysis of educational facilities. It argues that social relations are influenced by the physical environment, and that social and physical aspects are often interlinked. Although difficult to measure, including a gender perspective in international research and other projects on educational facilities would help to explore this relationship further. To do so, it briefly describes current work on gender and presents three challenges to gender equity in the context of educational facilities. The article then reflects on how men and women use educational spaces, drawing on examples of completed school projects. It then explores gender-related issues and related research, and considers how to incorporate a gender perspective on educational facilities.
