Second opportunities for women in rural Malawi

Gallastegi, Lore (2011). Second opportunities for women in rural Malawi. In: Gender Equality and Female Empowerment in Malawi, 01 Nov 2011, Edinburgh, Scotland.

Such slim representation demonstrates the extent of gender inequality both at a pupil, and also teacher level.
