About the Author

Erin Murphy-Graham is Assistant Adjunct Professor of Education at the University of California, Berkeley. She was formerly Assistant Professor of International Education at New York University.


A major contribution in helping us turn discussion of empowerment and education away from jargon and cynicism, enhancing our concern with women's struggles for recognition, capabilities, and wider social change.
--Elaine Unterhalter, University of London
Based on her years of intensive interviews, Murphy-Graham teaches us that the right kind of education promotes much more than economic opportunities. We learn about the remarkable ways that women changed: recognizing their own human worth, developing public voices, creating their own businesses, pursuing higher education, and negotiating more egalitarian marriages. This book should be read by everyone interested in the transformational power of education and in gender equality, and by all who seek hope for a better world.
--Francine Deutsch, Mt. Holyoke College
Erin Murphy-Graham shows how the complex process of empowerment unfolds, and answers the question of how it can take place within an educational program that also prepares students for traditional educational assessments. A valuable contribution to understanding gendered processes of empowerment at school and home.
--Karen Monkman, DePaul University
