Women Teaching for Change: Gender, Class and Power
Bloomsbury Academic, 1988 - 174 pages
Applying theory to practice, Women Teaching for Change reveals the complexity of being a feminist teacher in a public school setting, in which the forces of sexism, racism, and classism, which so characterize society as a whole, are played out in multiracial, multicultural classrooms. A fine book, a rich melding of critical theory in education, feminist literature, and pedagogical experience and expertise. Maxine Green, Columbia University
