•             Present a comprehensive overview of the work in gender and higher education globally;

•             Identify significant themes, trends, and controversies in higher education research related to gender equity;

    •             Explore current theoretical frameworks and the ways these shape the research;

•             Articulate absences and silences in the field’s inquiry and theory;

•             Examine the field’s major methodological paradigms and the political contexts in which researchers, policy makers, and research funders operate;

•             Highlight new and emerging research;

•             Explore areas of need for action.
