This insightful book is ideal for students, researchers and policy makers wanting a sound overview of the critical issues of gender in lifelong learning. Asking pertinent questions relating to discourses on policy, the authors offer the reader a rare view of lifelong learning from a gender-focused perspective, filling a gap in the literature and moving current debate on into new areas. Questions addressed include:

  • To what extent can the policy discourses and institutional contexts of lifelong learning be seen as masculinised and/or feminised?
  • What are the gender implications of lifelong learning policy?
  • In what ways are learners’ identities constructed through lifelong learning?
  • Does lifelong learning provide opportunities to challenge or transgress gender binaries?
  • What are the implications for practice?
