Uchendu, Uchechukwu; Roets, Griet; Vandenbroeck, Michel – Gender and Education, 2019

In that sense, the study of gender…

Blackmore, Jill – Discourse: Studies in the Cultural Politics of Education, 2019
Feminist theorists critiqued classical liberalism for the gender binaries embedded in social, political and economic theory and everyday social relations.

Anantharam, Anita – Arts and Humanities in Higher Education: An International Journal of Theory, Research and Practice, 2017
The idea of self-sufficiency resonates with feminist activists because the political thrust of the various movements for women's rights--beginning with Mary Wollstonecraft's plea for women's access to education in her famous "Vindication"--hinged on finding sustainable solutions to the stranglehold that social, political, and economic…
