This paper describes intergenerational changes in women’s access
to education in Nepal. It links up the changes with changing socioeconomic
processes and suggests that women’s access to education
is increasing by generation. And by linking up Anthony Giddens’s
Structuration Theory (1984) with the finding, the paper shows the
interplay of both structure and agency in bringing changes in
women’s access to education. This paper also shows the rural
urban differences in access to education and links up between
marriage and education. The paper begins with the brief
introduction of Nepal and Nepali women, goes on to theoretical
arguments on structure and agency debate, and then describes
methodology and characteristics of 39 women interviewees and
discusses changes.
