Description:

The paper looks at the article by Jane Gaskell and Sandra Taylor - "The Women's Movement and Canadian and Australian Education: From Liberation and Sexism to Boys and Social Justice" - that is a comparative analysis of the similarities and differences in the effects of the women's movements in Australia and Canada in terms of shaping educational policy and practice between 1970 and 2000. The paper discusses how while the two contexts were very similar, the study notes that a key difference between the two experiences lay in the significant degree of institutionalization of the women's movement in Australian state bureaucracies. The study notes, however, that while this has resulted in more institutional power for the women's movement in the shaping of education policy in Australia in contrast to Canada, the outcomes in terms of women's achievements in education in both countries remain similar (14-15).
