Gender Justice, Education and Equality

This book reframes gender and education issues from a feminist and capabilities perspective through a multi-generational study of women as teachers. It explores how different understandings of gender, equality and education generate a variety of approaches with which to pursue gender equality in education. Through employing the capabilities approach in a critical and innovative way to question justice, agency and well-being and also to evaluate valued functionings and capabilities, freedoms and lack of opportunities in women's lives in Turkey it highlights the need for constructing a gender-just society. The book takes a closer look at these women's memories, in order to understand how gender roles were created, negotiated and contested, and how the transition to modern ways of socialising and existing was shaped and women's emancipation was guided by women teachers as social actors, rather than as passive onlookers or oppressed individuals. It provides important insights and critical evidence to be used in the planning and implementation of education and social/gender policies. Firdevs Melis Cin is Assistant Professor of Education at Istanbul Ticaret University, Turkey. Her research focuses on gender and education, women's development, in particular the intersection between human development and gender.
