About this product
- DescriptionGender training proliferated in the1990s and gained ground with the emphasis on gender mainstreaming, a strategy adopted at the 1995 Fourth World Conference of Women in Beijing. At present gender training is increasingly being questioned as a tool and as a concept to engender development due to its disappointing performance to contribute to gender equality.Bringing together case studies and analyses of gender training from different country and regional contexts, this book revisits much of the thinking behind gender education and training. Together, the books authors explore the explicit and, more often, implicit assumptions in gender training about the nature of kwledge (epistemology), imparting kwledge (pedagogy) and kwing (cognition).This book, the tenth in the Gender, Society and Development: Global Sourcebooks Series, features case studies and an extensive and up-to-date antated bibliography of international resources, in print and online, making it a truly global sourcebook on the topic.
