Abstract

The purpose of WERA – Khanare, Larey, Gcelu is to advance educational research worldwide on Complexities and opportunities of the historical marginalised women in higher education from an African perspective (in this case South Africa, Lesotho, Botswana, Uganda and Swaziland). The questions underpinning the research are as follows: (a) What is women´s understanding of transformation in higher education? (b) What are the current challenges of the historically marginalised women in higher education? (c) How do these challenges constrain these women in the context of transformation in higher education? (d) What roles could historically marginalised women play to enable transformation in higher education? The study seeks to examine women´s understandings and how these understandings influence the enactment of transformation policy in an African context. It is situated in a triad of areas namely novice and experienced scholars from multi-disciplinary background. This local perspective is a lacuna that this study intends to address.
