"This important volume contains a wealth of the latest statistics, theories, programs, policies, and practices regarding the status of women throughout the field of higher education. Further, the call to limit the use of liberal feminism and expand knowledge and use of various feminist theories provides tangible strategies for researchers and practitioners as we work on equity for women in higher education-a status not yet attained."
