dc.description.abstractThis paper argues that despite the improvement in, and expansion of, the education system during the 1960s and 1970s, there has not been the desired economic growth and development that was hoped for, largely because of the failure of development planners to recognize the economic role of women and the contribution they can make to the development process. However, women have now begun to play a more active role in the development process, and the paper examines the role that education, and particularly nonformal education, can play in this "new" model of development. It concludes that although a focus on nonformal education and on women's issues alone is not the answer to the developmental problems facing the region, yet they are tools that can be used by women and men in their struggle to transform their societies
