Description - Women, Class And Education by Jane Thompson

This text focuses on women of the working class. It is about particular and personal journeys; complicated lives lived within the shifting landscape of class, education and gendered identity over the last 40 years. Making use of theory, reflection, narrativity and auto/biographical writing, Jane Thompson provides an accessible understanding of what learning means and what education can contribute to the struggles of working class women intent on changing the circumstances of their lives. The book is organized into three parts. In the first section, Thompson draws on autobiographical experience to root theoretical understanding in the authority of personal knowledge. In part two, she illustrates how theoretical analysis can inform arguments about women's changing relationships to class, community, consciousness and education and in the final part, she provides detailed examples of educational work she has been involved in with working class women. In summary, this book explores personal narratives that underline the importance of feminism as a source of political inspiration, social analysis and change.
