It raises important questions for readers from both high- and low-income countriesabout whether formal or non- formal education will best serve women's needs; whether state or private initiatives are more likely to succeed in raising women's status through the delivery of transforming knowledge; and whether Western dreams of modernization have any relevance to non-Western societies.Countries covered include India, Pakistan, Korea, the Philippines, Kenya, Zimbabwe, Mexico, Peru, and Brazil.
