Increasing access and equity in higher education: gender issues

Mlama, P.M.

Abstract:
The paper attempts a review of gender issues in higher education.  It starts with an exposition of previous undertakings on gender issues in general in order to contextualise gender equity in higher education within global positions. The next part deals with gender issues in higher education by outlining past and current effort to attain gender equity. Observations on the challenges or future action are advanced and a case for more concerted action made as a conclusion.  Due to limit time in the preparation of the paper, however, experiences are drawn mostly from the Tanzanian context.
