"Women's Colleges and Universities in a Global Context has a strong empirical basis and provides an important and compelling set of perspectives. I know of no other book that has taken on the ambitious research agenda developed here. Well written, engaging, and thoughtfully presented."(Daryl G. Smith, author of Diversity's Promise for Higher Education: Making It Work)
"Renn boldly engages the complexities of women's lives globally, giving careful attention to the intersections of gender, culture, economics, and education... Women's Colleges and Universities in a Global Context is a rich resource for researchers and students interested in women's issues and the role of higher education in transforming the climate for women's equity across the world... With this book, Renn has further confirmed her well-deserved reputation as a preeminent scholar of higher education both within the US and internationally."(Journal of College Student Development)
