This volume contains contributions presented at the international conference Gender Perspectives on Vocational Education (19-21 August 1999, Aarau). The main focus is on gender aspects in vocational education - particularly health care education - and further education. Authors from different countries discuss the influence of gender on vocational education and present research results and political reform projects. Drawing on international comparisons an outlook on gender equality in the fields of vocational education and work is offered. The articles particularly emphasize how equal rights for men and women can be put into practice in various occupations.
