Education seen through women’s eyes

Seminar by ELP's Education Working Group

Czech Trade Unions House (DOS)
Nam Winstona Churchilla 2


Speaking about education means pointing something essential in society: formation of personalities of citizens and printing a mark in collective culture.

For years, neo-liberalism has a distraint on educational systems in Europe. Results: a school policy which destroys the social cohesion, ruins public services pushing more and more to individualism, to personal success.

A policy carrying a model of society centered on the man, white, heterosexual, Christian (in most of European countries) and on a single family model. We are with favour of an open school, which includes all the differences.

A school which eliminates the sexist vision of society, which eliminates the gender stereotypes and which rebuilds a social model in which men and women have the same legitimacy as individual people. A school where respect of differences of all forms of sexual identity is the basis of a dialogue and of the construction of a jointly society.

A political reflection about education from the women’s point of view about the models given and ‘prescribed’ by the society of today represents an opening for projects of a different world in which everyone has the right to speak, where equality of rights is the same for all.

A reflection with this approach points on educational systems from the point of view of sex and class. It is a problem of social and cultural policy.
