Abstract

Although the number of women academics has increased worldwide, there is still ample evidence that the academy is a patriarchal organization. This review examines four recent books on academic women. Collectively, they suggest that new scholarship on academic women is more international, reflects a postmodern attention to difference and power, rejects "women's ways" feminism as a sufficient response, and seeks to reclaim issues of power, authority, and politics through attention to policy.
