A unique volume that addresses issues of gender in education by examining the work experiences and policies affecting women and teaching in Latin America, North American, and parts of Europe, with a focus on the social construction of women teachers.

Industry Reviews

"A sophisticated and highly readable book on the causes and consequences of the feminization of teaching in Catholic countries in Europe, Latin America, and the Caribbean, along with Britain and Canada. The diversity and plurality of social contexts highlighted in the case studies provide much-needed additions to work on the earlier feminization of teaching in English-speaking countries." - Myra Strober, Professor of Education and Professor (by courtesy) of Economics at the Graduate School of Business, Stanford University.
