Editorial Reviews

Review

"This compact set of essays written between 2014 and 2018 are a window into sexual politics, the academy, and the structures of inequity that are this American moment. These are gendered tales, intimate stories about productive and reproductive labors and what it means to speak up and to speak out, and the costs of being heard. None of this is easy. #MeToo comes out of a long legacy of feminist activism, struggle and powerful writing. In this collection, Kelly Baker steps up and out. She presents a critical recent piece of this story--her story, an education in sexism at the margins that are the heart of the American Academy." --Laura Levitt, Ph.D., author of Jews and Feminism: The Ambivalent Search for Home and American Jewish Loss after the Holocaust

"In Sexism Ed, Kelly Baker tells a story about women, work, and the academy bigger than but anchored in her own experiences of precarity and gender discrimination. Taken singly, the essays are thoughtful and incisive. Cumulatively, they paint an infuriating portrait of twenty-first century sexism, scholar-style. Harrowing, though never humorless or hopeless, this collection is required reading. ... It's a huge accomplishment and I will recommend it to everyone I know. --Kecia Ali, Ph.D., author of Sexual Ethics and Islam: Feminist Reflections on Qur'an, Hadith, and Jurisprudence

"An absolute must-read. Sexism Ed tells savage truths that every administrator and tenured prof should be forced to read and acknowledge. Baker skewers the bogus "no sexism here" self-delusion of academic employers. Parsing the structural sexism of employment in higher ed, Baker comprehensively exposes the everyday abusers of women and contingent faculty. She pushes past headlines and obvious villains to the broadly complicit groups hiding in plain sight, including women cheerfully active in the exploitation of other women, men proffering themselves as "allies" to feminism, and the anti-discrimination administrators that guarantee the best outcome for the institution--genteel silence for rape, harassment and discrimination--rather than justice for victims. A call to collective action, this short, readable collection blows past call-out culture (that targets individuals as if they were rare specimens, and ignores structural sexism). It demands collective responses to collective villainy." --Marc Bousquet, Ph.D., author of How The University Works: Higher Education and the Low-Wage Nation

"In a stirring suite of essays, Kelly Baker reveals that, contrary to its "ivory tower" characterization, the university is no retreat from the world's injustices." --Miya Tokumitsu, Ph.D., author of Do What You Love: And Other Lies About Success & Happiness

--This text refers to the paperback edition.
