Abstract [en]

How to deal with gender, women, gender roles, feminism and gender equality in

teaching practices? The ATHENA thematic network brings together specialists in

women’s and gender studies, feminist research, women’s rights, gender equality

and diversity. In the book series ‘Teaching with Gender’ the partners in this network

have collected articles on a wide range of teaching practices in the field of gender.

The books in this series address challenges and possibilities of teaching about

women and gender in a wide range of educational contexts. The authors discuss

pedagogical, theoretical and political dimensions of learning and teaching on


and gender. The books in this series contain teaching material, reflections

on feminist pedagogies, practical discussions about the development of gendersensitive

curricula in specific fields. All books address the crucial aspects of


in Europe today: increasing international mobility, growing importance

of interdisciplinarity and the many practices of life-long learning and training

that take place outside the traditional programmes of higher education. These

books will be indispensable tools for educators who take serious the challenge of

teaching with gender.

Abstract [en]

The concept of intersectionality is at the heart of debates about the future of equality

policies in Europe. How do different identities interact and affect the opportunities

for individuals and groups in society? Public policy used to focus on one or

another aspect of equality, such as gender, sexual orientation or physical abilities.

The question today is how ‘equality’ can be addressed while taking into account


identities and interlocking patterns of discrimination. The volume “


Intersectionality: Putting Gender at the Centre” reviews recent discussions about

intersectionality departing from the insights from gender studies. The aim is to

provide students and policy makers with theoretical resources and practical policy

examples to help understand these debates. Learning from the experience with

gender equality policy and improving equality policy for all is a central concern.

The book includes examples demonstrating how new European Union legislation is

playing out in policy practice and invites readers to use the resources for research

and training.
