In all western countries, women have made lasting and significant contributions to the educational enterprise. Despite this, most books on schools overlook and ignore these contributions. The twelve chapters in this groundbreaking volume demonstrate that gender structuring in the schools is an international phenomenon.
The first volume to focus cross-culturally on women educational professionals, this book brings together the voices and observations of women educators from nine Western countries. Included are descriptive data about the employment patterns of women in schools, historical accounts of womens entrance to the public domain of teaching, analyses of womens issues in teachers unions, and feminist analyses of the educational profession.
