The construction of what is perceived as merit within Western society is largely determined by male values. Women's skills are not being given the same value as men's. For women, education can enhance acknowledgment of their capabilities, even though these capabilities are constrained by the male culture. Through an examination of the English program offered by the Women into Science and Technology (WIST) course we will reveal how the experiences of women can be correlated with this masculine system of values, thus making their skills marketable and attuned to the meritorious systems of lifelong learning.
