Editorial Reviews

"Like its predecessor, Gender in Popular Education, this book makes visible 'the innovative, challenging creative work undertaken by feminist popular educators, sometimes under the most trying conditions'. Sixteen years on, we have a collection of chapters that are exemplary stories of praxis, weaving together feminist and pedagogic theory and practice for action, illustrating how feminist popular education is 'a means to both exercise and contest power' . . . The 21 authors all deal with the tensions and contradictions, revelations and crucial insights that arise in/out of doing this work and they describe and critically analyse their craft, giving us valuable insight into the workings of feminist popular education." - International Journal of Lifelong Education
