DescriptionThis article is concerned with identifying the main elements in a programme of education for women's empowerment, by contrasting such education with its opposite: schooling for subordination. It is here argued that education and training for women's empowerment needs to reverse the values and beliefs which have been inculcated within the conventional school system. This article is hosted by our co-publisher Taylor & Francis.
