See C37085 for original, Pages 219-232 in Anna Robinson-Pant (ed.), Women, literacy and development: alternative perspectives. Routledge, London, England. Routledge Studies in Literacy. 259 pages., Using a case study, the author examines why participants engage in adult learning/literacy programs and how they use the outcomes. "Literacy achievement could not have been the driving force." Nor could the participatory practices have "rendered the programme irresistable and empowering to women."
