Summary This book explores the complex questions facing funding agencies and foundations as they grapple to understand and define gender equity in education. As a collection of writings, many of which are written by the foundations themselves, the book engages the reader in the different approaches funders use to define gender equity, target limited resources, and create collaborative relationships that will ultimately make schools more equitable and engaging for boys and girls of a variety of cultural backgrounds
