Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This study adopts a feminist theory of intersectionality to understand and explain the educational experiences of poor rural and urban girls, who live in Nyanza Province of Kenya. It explores the ways in which diverse forms of vulnerability interact with gender to influence girls' educational experiences.More specifically, it seeks to describe the experiences of these girls as they pertain to class, gender and ethnic identity (or any other social dimensions as identified by participants) in the context of free primary education. The particular purpose of the study is to examine how the marginalized children are faring in Free Primary Education. An understanding of these socio-cultural and political-economic dynamics will help me to identify policy options that can effectively address the needs of the excluded girls. Understanding the policy impact on the lives of those at the margins of society,particularly those aimed at improving the lives of women and girls is imperative in view of the question of ‘difference ‘in feminist political thought.
