Publisher Comments:

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.

Book News Annotation:

A selection of short articles from Women in Higher Education, a newsletter that for eight years has been publishing reports from the front line of the gender war on US campuses. Averaging three to four pages, they are arranged in topical sections such as current road conditions for women drivers, reading the map of your career, and are we there yet?
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Since 1992 women faculty and administrators have turned to Women in Higher Education as their barometer of campus climate and survival guide to the topology of career advancement. Now, in this lively compendium of articles from the newsletter's first eight years, editors Mary Dee Wenniger and Mary Helen Conroy provide a wild ride across the turbulent gender equity landscape of American higher education. They offer a broad view of the progress women have made toward achieving full and fair career recognition, and assess the distance that remains to be covered. Readers will appreciate the book's blend of serious commentary, sage advice, and healthy doses of wry humor, as well as successful strategies from women who have broken the academic glass ceiling and scaled campus career ladders.
