dc.description.abstractAny useful discussion on Gender and Higher Education in the context of development must be anchored within particular ideologies since each of the three concepts is value-laden. For instance, it is possible to analyse the eight (8) Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), prominent among which is the “promotion of gender equality and women empowerment”, as the logical concomitants of the neo-liberalist ideology propelling the on-going process of globalization. Through this new politico-economic agenda, nations of the world have tacitly accepted their respective short-comings. The poor ones have pledged to govern better and invest in their people through improved health care and education, while the rich ones have pledged their support for poor ones through aid, debt relief and fairer trade. The concept of equity /inequity, whether of gender, race or creed, must be situated within a broad, all-subsuming theory of oppression reminiscent of Young’s (1990) five faces of oppression, namely exploitation, marginalization, powerlessness, cultural imperialism and violence. This would clearly indicate that the problem is not simply about inclusivity vs exclusivity, as inclusivity has qualitative as well as quantitative implications.
