Reviews

"Each of the chapters has been written in a way that draws the reader into the historical and chronological storyline of the individual women. ... This reading is interesting for students and scholars focusing on the gendered dimensions of education and professions related to teaching. It is also full of insights for those searching for historical perspectives on women's struggles in education and women's history." (Victoria Showunmi, History of Education, Vol. 46 (3), 2017)"This reading is interesting for students and scholars focusing on the gendered dimensions of education and professions related to teaching. It is also insightful for those searching for historical perspectives on women's struggles in education and women's history. Furthermore, it will be productive for anyone looking at the history of education in Anglo-speaking countries." - Gender and Education
