Understanding Gender in Educational Research and Practice

Gender in Contemporary Education Research edited by Ratna M Sudarshan and Jandhyala B G Tilak (eds), Delhi: Gyan Publishing House and NIEPA, 2018; pp 436, ₹1,400.

A book so varied in the perspectives and issues that it raises, Gender in Contem­porary Education Research is sure to ­become a book that academics, gender rights activists, educationist, working in the grassroots and other concerned citizens will value. In this edited volume, the editors Ratna M Sudarshan and Jandhyala B G Tilak have compiled a ­series of papers from leading academics, policymakers and researchers in the field of education and gender studies to produce a comprehensive and exhaustive outlook on the ways in which contemporary educational research in India has been influenced and shaped by the gender question.

The book succeeds in raising pertinent questions on how educational rese­arch and practice in India have looked at the issues of gender equity and discrimination, how gendered perspectives have impacted access to opportunity, factors determining educational development and opportunity, equity in access to education and the implications of women’s education for the wider society.
