Deats and LenKer have clearly produced a winner. These remarkably varied essays will spark many lively discussions of this significant contemporary issue. Expect to find this resource in every women's studies program. (Helen Popovich, president, Ferris State University)
These essays explore a wide range of issues—the content of curriculum , classroom pedagogy, and relationships with students and offer personal accounts of women's journeys in colleges and universities...and thus offer a valuable accout of the range of feminist teaching practices and reflections of pedagogy. (Kathleen Weiler, Tufts University; author of Women Teaching for Change)

Without a doubt, this book offers some helpful and provocative thoughts about feminism in higher education. Although the title leads one to believe that the book will cover many disciplines, it primarily focuses on feminism in literature courses. Nonetheless, the book is still valuable both as a pedagogical and feminist reference source. This book is a compilation of essays by many authors so the reader can pick and choose whichever ones interest her. Many pertinent topics are discussed in these essays including the nature of personal writing, how submissions to feminist journals can possibly derail one's career, and how one can be a catalyst for change in the classroom and out.
