>Educating women is the most effective route for improving a society's
>standard of living.  Yet, throughout the world educating women and girls
>is often not seen as a priority and women lag behind men in literacy rates

>in math, science and technology classes, and in non-traditional fields. 
>While Women's Studies is a presence in higher education, few students
>are exposed to feminist scholarship in K-12 classrooms.  This
>conference will examine the broad range of issues concerning educating
>women and girls.  Our definition of education includes but is not limited to
>learning that takes place within formal educational institutions.  We
>encourage all educators and those concerned with educating women
>and girls in schools or in the community to participate.   
>Proposals for workshops, panel sessions of three papers, individual
>papers, performances and exhibits are welcome.  Examples of possible
