Visit http://gseweb.harvard.edu/~hepg/her.html for free access to essays that originally appeared in a special symposium on the history of women in education.
The story of women in education is a story of oppression and resistance. Through interviews, analysis, and research, these articles chronicle the stories and struggles of women, including Native Americans, Eritreans, African Americans, and white women, who have broken through barriers and claimed an education for themselves, their sisters, and their daughters. The authors also dig deep into the practice of historical inquiry itself, and examine how the presence of women as researchers, teachers, and learners makes a difference in recording their history.
