Gendered Choices critically examines the continued expansion of a skills-based approach in areas of lifelong learning, including career decisions, professional identities and informal networks. It explores key intersections of adult learning from a gender perspective: notablyparticipation, workplace learning and informal pathways.
Drawing on research from a range of contexts, Gendered Choices demonstrates that for women the public/private spaces of work and home are often conflated, although the gendering of ‘choice’ has largely been ignored by policy makers.
The themes of the book bring together some of these critical issues, explored through the multiple and fractured identities which constitute gendered lives.The book addresses these in an international context, with contributions from Canada, Spain and Iran that provide a wider international perspective on shared issues.
