Summary
"For the past 40 years women in the academy have been working to achieve equality with their male colleagues in the areas of hiring, salary, promotion, tenure, and alloted resources. Yet, research indicates that in many ways, academia has been resistant to change, instead maintaining policies, practices, and procedures that preserve the privileges of White, male faculty while undermining those aimed at fostering equality. The book provides evidence of ongoing discrimination in the work lives of women graduate students and faculty. The chapters draw on theory, research, and personal narrative to illustrate, theorize, and explore the 'chilly climate' that academic women face, as well as to offer alternatives for creating a more inclusive, fair, and just academy for everyone. The book pays particular attention to the ways that gender intersects with ethnicity, race, class, sexuality, and other aspects of self--including whether academic women are mothers and/or feminists--and the effects of this intersectionality on their experiences and careers in higher education."--Publisher's website
