Abstract

Faced with men’s domination of the education system as teachers, students, organisers and creators of that which counts as academic knowledge — women influenced by the Women’s Liberation Movement have not been slow to demand some changes. Knowing how men’s education in colleges and universities makes us seem invisible, and how adult education is often used to preserve the status quo — when we see women’s studies courses advertised our first reaction is to feel both pleased and grateful. Grateful that someone’s making women a priority. Pleased that our cultural, practical and political concerns are being taken seriously.
