Women and Literacy
Edited by Mev Miller and Irene Alexander
In this collection, adult learners and practitioners from adult education and women's studies raise significant questions about literacy and women, identity, and power. From prison education to refugee advocacy, contributors offer detailed analyses of how women's literacy affects their families and communities, and ultimately contributes to knowledge production and social change. An annotated bibliography and a sample syllabus enrich the pedagogical discussion. Both U.S. and international perspectives are represented through essays, personal accounts, and poetry.
