In this article, we embrace a southern perspective in feminist theory while embarking on a genealogical analysis of gender constructs in research about Igbo women in South-Eastern Nigeria. In that sense, the study of gender…

Pittard, Elizabeth A. – Gender and Education, 2017
In this paper, I share data from a year-long study investigating the manifestations of neo-liberalism in the working lives of five women elementary school teachers in the United States. I discuss how gendered discourses of neo-liberalism construct what is understood as possible in the material-discursive production of the women's subjectivities…

Chilisa, Bagele; Ntseane, Gabo – Gender and Education, 2010

We discuss how African and Black feminist approaches…

This article presents a feminist reading of a Swedish social work academic textbook as a case study.

Martin, Jane – Gender and Education, 2011
A central principle of 1970s feminism was a concern with making women visible and the historical creation of women's public voices is an important methodological premise of feminist research. When written, biographies of female actors "recovered" from the condescension of posterity, can illuminate the telling of individual and collective…
