The Role of "Other Women" in Current Educational Transformations
Christou, Miranda; Puigvert, Lidia
International Studies in Sociology of Education, v21 n1 p77-90 Mar 2011
The INCLUD-ED project's case studies of successful schools in Europe reveal that there are advantages involved in opening schools to all kinds of women as far as educational and social inclusion is concerned. "Other Women"--those whose voices have traditionally been silenced in academic settings--help in crucial ways to improve education when they have the chance to participate in multiple spaces and activities in the school. By participating in decision-making bodies, in classrooms and in family education, amongst other activities, the "Other Women" enhance students' learning, improve living together and break down cultural and gender stereotypes. All these findings point to the need to open schools to all women to advance processes of educational transformation. (Contains 2 notes.)
