The main purpose of our research was to engage with the views of other women and the traditions and the environments inhabited by women teachers in their role as women and as teachers as possibilities, as forms for learning. Our purpose was to regenerate a “grounding practice or praxis,” that is, “informed, committed action” (Smith 1994:166-7) on what it means to be a woman and a teacher in the world today. Sen (1995:259) states that “empirical research has brought out clearly the extent to which women occupy disadvantaged positions in traditional economic and social arrangements.” We wanted to know how our shared, and sharing of stories might strengthen and extend what it means to be a woman and a teacher in order to confront such theory and practice.
