Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Transforming Women’s Education traces the history of women’s studies at the University of Wisconsin. Drawing on oral histories and archival records, it follows this history from the earliest arguments over women's admission to the university through their acceptance as students on equal terms with men, to the mid-twentieth-century development of special programs for mature women students, and finally, to the development in the 1970s of the new field of women's studies.

    As students, teachers, administrators, staff members, activists, and scholars—or, in some cases, all of those—the women described in this book have been part of the movement that has insisted on their importance as both learners and producers of knowledge.

Book News Annotation:

Tells the story of women's education and the evolution of women's studies within what is now the University of Wisconsin System, drawing on archival research and some 80 interviews. Sidebars offer voices of women who participated in the creation and development of women's studies. Lacks a subject index.
