This paper has relied in many cases on feminist-informed theory, because feminism is concerned with groups who are oppressed by dominant majorities. In the case of adult learning, it is not unreasonable to identify these persons as a minority and so oppressed in the sense that their issues are not of concern to the mainstream public. The paper will follow with a review of some alternative notions of "learner" as a way to re-locate adult education perspectives in the contexts of feminist concerns for minority rights and the problems which face minority groups on a daily basis.
