Format: Paperback
This is a remarkable book, remarkable for the quality of the writing and analysis and remarkable for how depressing it is. It is mind-boggling that since the struggle for equity for women in equal pay in professions began (could it be almost 50 years ago?), that women in academia have not only not progressed much, but the editor of this book makes a compelling case for a finding that women in academia have actually gone backward -- not just in pay, but in promotions, in full professorships, in special leaves, in other honors. . and what is worse, the discrimination is across the board. This book has articles written by Asian-American, African-American, Latina, and gay and straight female academics, and across the board the situation can't be described in any other way than bleak. However, it is an incredibly empowering book, the editor's summary chapter is a ringing call to continue the fight for equity; there are also interesting suggestions as to how to change the environment of academia to be more women-friendly, more mother-friendly. I read a review of this book on an academic web site and the reviewer said that this is a book she wanted her daughters to read, particularly if they wanted to become college teachers. And they must, and they must continue to try to effect change; otherwise there will be no women to teach our granddaughters. I am not an academic, but I work in a field which is also not very women-friendly. This is a book for any woman who feels that she is not treated equally in her professional life.
