Gender battles still rage on most college and university campuses today. For eight years, Women in Higher Education has reported women's strategic advances in the academy. Its goal is to enlighten, encourage, empower, and enrage women administrators, faculty, and students in higher education.This book is a compendium of lively, hard-hitting articles from the successful newsletter. Its thematic sections blend serious commentary, research results, and practical advice with wry humor. Readers will find a broad view of recent progress as well as effective strategies from women who have changed the academy. Topics include women's leadership and management styles and strategies, valuing the self, sex and sexuality, playing politics, and much more. Filled with wisdom drawn from real-world experience, Gender Equity or Bust! illuminates what women can do to transform the culture of higher education into one that honors their values and contributions.
