About this book

This book draws upon the experiences of a group of women in social science who came together for support and encouragement in becoming 'research active'. It identifies the main issues facing women in research and will be useful to those considering, or already embarked upon a research career as well as contributing to debates about women's role in the academic world. This collection breaks new ground by combining the reflections of established researchers with self-assessment exercises for potential researchers.

Reviews

'It is the kind of book I wish I had had access to years ago...an admirable and accessible guide to transgressing exclusionary boundaries in pursuit of the pleasures of a career in research.' - Melanie Walker, Teaching in Higher Education
