From the Publisher
"…excellent historical resource volume…Strongly recommended for parents and educators and anyone seeking a deeper understanding of the various historical contexts of girls, which include important questions of gender, sexism and social equity. Highly recommended. General readers; upper-division undergraduates and above."
"…Material here is divided into two major parts: historical overview and primary documents. The historical overview includes six essays by various authors addressing girls' literacy from colonial times to the end of the twentieth century. These essays are fascinating and compelling reading…Overall, this is a superb resource that explores far more than the topic of girls and literacy. It would be a valuable addition to both public and academic libraries.'
