Women and Leadership in Open and Distance Learning and Development
This book could not have come at a better time. Many women in Commonwealth Member States continue to face great challenges of severe discrimination and violence. Education is one means of equipping women to deal with this ongoing struggle, one step at a time. Each and every woman who steps up to take a lead in these matters makes a difference and clears the way for those who follow. It is our hope that this book, a compendium of personal experiences and insights, will serve to inspire and illuminate the way for many women leaders, eager to be born! // Series formerly called "Perspectives on Distance Education."
