Towards Gender Equality

South African Schools during the HIV and AIDS Epidemic

By Robert Morrell, Debbie Epstein, Elaine Unterhalter, Deevia Bhana, Relebohile Moletsane

Since the democratic elections in 1994, there have been concerted efforts to redress race and gender inequalities in South Africa. In schools, teachers and students have responded in their own ways toward change. This book provides a nuanced analysis that reveals their struggles to realize gender equality. In distinguishing short-term interventions to change behavior from institutional approaches, which seek to transform school structures, the book offers a new framework for understanding gender equality initiatives.
