This book presents a vision of a transformational education which would promote social change, enable girls to achieve their full potential, and contribute to the creation of a just and democratic society. Contributors to this book examine the extent and causes of gender-based inequality in education; analyse government policies and their implications for women's empowerment; and report on original field-work in a range of local contexts where gender-equality initiatives have flourished.
