The Politics of Women's Studies
In the patriarchal halls of 1970s academe, women who spoke their minds risked their careers. Yet intrepid womenstudents, faculty, administrators, members of the communitypersisted in collaborating to form women's studies. In doing so, they created a movement that altered curricula and teaching styles, and shifted paradigms and content across disciplines.These original essays by "founding mothers" feature a diversity of voices: young graduate students or new PhD's just beginning to teach and untenured; tenured professors in search of ways to improve their students' capacities to learn; older, veteran academics at last witnessing change; and even a few administrators. In all of these programs, founders grappled not only with issues of gender, but with those of class, race, and sexuality, in a decade infused with political unrest and questioning, when civil rights and anti-war activism, as well as feminism, shaped academic worlds.
