Women and Literacy Programs
This report discusses a research project undertaken to:
• examine how gender and the power balance of the male/female relationship affect women's access to, and experience of, literacy programs and how it affects the impact of literacy programs on women
• determine how literacy programs and literacy practice might be changed to better respond to the reality of the lives of adult women learners, and
• share this information with women literacy students and workers, through print materials and in workshops, to foster the development of relevant, appropriate, and accessible literacy learning opportunities for women
• talk with women literacy students and workers who are currently involved in literacy programs
• develop key questions out of the "data" of the women's stories
• develop a research design to investigate these questions further using an action research model.
