About this book

Introduction

Learning the Hard Way is a unique book written by more than sixty predominantly working-class women who draw on their own experiences to talk about education and its relation to their lives and struggles. The authors show how the education they received was inappropriate and oppressive, explain how the education system should be changed to serve women's needs and discuss how the current anti-feminist climate intensifies the backlash against all women.
