Description: "The papers prepared for the Mount Holyoke Conference present a refreshing advance in approaches to women and education. Most of them examine the historical context of modern educational development. Some highlight the impact of colonial rule and the encounter with western cultures and knowledge systems, while a few go back to an earlier past to search for religious, cultural or other influences that determined the perception of gender roles by the dominant section of their societies which eventually flowed into the modern systems of education."
