Reviews

'This is the book that every university president should read. Amassing an impressive array of scholarship concerning universities in the European Union and the United States, the authors make visible the current conditions and deep concerns of women scientists, humanists, and others across the academic spectrum. Chapter by chapter the authors make visible the subtle and not-so-subtle ways women in the academy are made to struggle to gain footholds in a deeply gendered structure of academic power and privilege. Together, the authors point the way to a new academic order by laying down a new, imaginative framework for gender mainstreaming. Those of us whose careers intertwine with many of these issues will find new ideas and information by which to bolster our personal and collective journey toward greater gender equality and democracy.' - Kathryn M. Moore, Ph.D., dean of the College of Education, North Carolina State University

'A very important book in the literature of higher education. It reminds us of the work completed in the area of gender equity and the work that still needs to be done. An unfinished agenda, but so critical to the welfare of the academy and all of us in it. It is an informative, inspiring, and challenging volume. It is a must read.' - Helen S. Astin, Professor Emeritus of Higher Education and Senior Scholar, UCLA

'This cross-cultural collection of institutional and system-level case studies offers a clear and convincing demonstration of the equality challenges still remaining for women students, academics, and other staff in universities. Written by international scholars, the book provides excellent and well-narrated examples of good practices in efforts to achieve gender equality, as well as insightful illustrations of the constraints, difficulties, and problems that can arise in such processes. The book will be of compelling interest to academics, administrators, senior managers, and many others who are struggling with questions about how best to develop and implement gender equality policies in higher education.' - Rosemary Deem, graduate dean for the Faculty of Social Sciences and Law, University of Bristol, UK
