Feminist popular education

Scope note
A political, collective learning process aimed at “consciousness-raising”, based onfacilitated dialogue that places the learners’ voices and lived experiences at the heart of the learning and enables an analysis of power and patriarchy. brazilian scholar-activist Paulo Freire originally developed popular education about 50 years ago. Freire’s methods have been widely critiqued and adapted over the years, spawning many participatory and interactive learning processes. Feminist popular education incorporates a gender and a class analysis of oppression and starts with the personal dimension as a site for   consciousness-raising and change. in this way, it seeks to develop understanding and capacities to influence how power operates within the private realm: families, sexual partnerships, and marriage. Feminist popular education acknowledgeshow socialization impacts a woman’s sense of herself, her self-confidence, health, body image, psychology,and ability to seek fulfillment and pleasure in all areas of life. (Freire 1970 and veneKlasen 2006)
