Since the mid-twentieth century, the United States has seen a striking shift in the gender dynamics of higher educational attainment as women have come to earn college degrees at higher rates than men. Women have also made significant strides in terms of socioeconomic status and political engagement. What explains the progress that American women have made since the 1960s? While many point to the feminist movement as the critical turning point, this book makes the case that women's movement toward first class citizenship has been shaped not only by important societal changes, but also by the actions of lawmakers who used a combination of redistributive and regulatory higher education policies to enhance women's incorporation into their roles as American citizens. Examining the development and impact of the National Defense Education Act of 1958, the Higher Education Act of 1965, and Title IX of the 1972 Education Amendments, this book argues that higher education policies represent a crucial-though largely overlooked-factor shaping the progress that women have made. By significantly expanding women's access to college, they helped to pave the way for women to surpass men as the recipients of bachelor's degrees, while also empowering them to become more economically independent, socially integrated, politically engaged members of the American citizenry. In addition to helping to bring into greater focus our understanding of how Southern Democrats shaped U.S. social policy development during the mid-twentieth century, this analysis recognizes federal higher education policy as an indispensible component of the American welfare state.

This collection establishes a highly topical, new, international field of study: that of gender, education and citizenship. It brings together for the first time important cutting-edge research on the contribution of the educational system to the formation of male and female citizens. It shows how gender relations operate behind apparently neutral concepts of liberal democratic citizenship and citizenship education. The editors asked leading international educationalists to describe the theoretical frameworks and methodologies they used to research gender and citizenship. Challenging Democracy suggests ways in which the educational system could help develop genuinely inclusive democratic societies in which men and women play an equal role in shaping the meaning of citizenship.

The World Education Forum of April 2000, set gender equality as one of its important goals. The target was to achieve parity in enrolment of girls and boys in primary education and secondary education by 2005 and full equality by 2015. This monitoring report shows that many countries will fail to make the 2005 target but circumstances could change quickly, with appropriate policy changes. However educational inequality is caused by deep-rooted social forces and a wide range of economic and social changes are needed.

Focusing on citizenship means thinking about the relationships between individuals and the states in which they live. What difference does having citizenship rights mean for peoplee(tm)s lives? Are structures of governance efficient, and responsive to peoplee(tm)s needs? This collection of articles examines ways in which citizenship is denied, and argues that citizenship can be used to demand and advance human rights. Women often find themselves excluded from full citizenship by legal systems which leave men to look after the interests of their female dependants. But women need recognition as citizens in their own right, to protect them from exploitation and abuse. People from marginalized communities also often find that the state fails to respond to their needs and interests. Finally, migrants e" a growing group of women and men in our global economy e" live precariously as aliens in states which do not acknowledge their claims to basic security and services. Topics here include the tension between cultural sensitivity and universal concepts of rights; reinterpretations of citizenship in communities where the state has failed to guarantee political or economic rights; and projects that are helping to advance active citizenship by increasing peoplee(tm)s voice in decisionmaking.

This paper examines the evaluation of egalitarianism in Papua New Guinea, and argues that in both precolonial and independent New Guinea the focus has been on male relationships as the indicator of equality. It argues that studies of growing stratification in Papua New Guinea have ignored or dismissed gender as a source of inequality, and have failed to deal with the growing disparities between men and women. The paper focuses on educational opportunity as the key to wealth and political power and shows that rural women are decidedly disadvantaged educationally. Data from national censuses and the author's field work, as well as literature concerning stratification, are used to support the argument.
