About this book

This book is a multi-disciplinary exploration of the intersection, relationship, and connection between higher education, economic development, and gender in post-Apartheid South Africa. In just twenty years, South Africa has rewritten its constitution, restructured its macroeconomic growth and development policies, restructured its higher education system, and made a commitment to provide opportunity for all its citizens, specifically those who have historically been marginalized, women and blacks. Eynon weaves together these unique perspectives to illustrate how these multiple domains map onto women and the critical role they play in the present and future of the country. Gender equality and women’s empowerment and education were considered key drivers to South Africa’s transformation.

Reviews

“In this book, Eynon takes us on a journey through post-apartheid South Africa and more importantly, the lives of women seeking higher education. What is most beautiful about Eynon’s work is the way she shows the intersections of poverty, race, violence, health, and gender in the lives of women.” (Marybeth Gasman, Professor of Higher Education, University of Pennsylvania, USA)
