In Shattering the Myths, Judith Glazer-Raymo uses a critical feminist perspective to examine women's progress in higher education since 1970. She contrasts the activism of the 1970s, the passivity of the 1980s, and the ambivalence and antipathy demonstrated toward feminism in the 1990s. These waves of change, she explains, were brought about by external forces, by generational differences among women, and by intellectual and ideological struggles within the women's movement and the larger academic culture. In tracing three decades of women's progress in the academy, the author provides data from a variety of sources on women's rank, salary, employment status, and education. The book also draws on the experience of women faculty and administrators as they articulate and reflect on the social, economic, political, and ideological contexts in which they work and the multiple influences on their professional and personal lives.

About the Author:

Judith Glazer-Raymo is a professor of education on the C. W. Post Campus of Long Island University. She is the author of A Teaching Doctorate? The Doctor of Arts, Then and Now and The Master's Degree: Tradition, Diversity, Innovation and co-editor of Women in Higher Education: A Feminist Perspective.

Review:

"An extremely important book... Glazer-Raymo demonstrates that although gender discrimination has evolved and now appears in different forms, it nonetheless remains a characteristic feature of academe, and women academics continue to pay a disproportionate price."

(Florence A. Hamrick Journal of Higher Education)

"[Glazer-Raymo] blends a life history approach with the current statistical results of large research studies."

(NWSA Journal)

"I highly recommend this book. It is useful for everyone in higher education, particularly for women who may find the information and stories resonating with their own lives. The author successfully deconstructs higher education using a feminist perspective and provides suggestions for future action."

(Community College Journal of Research and Practice)

"An insightful and critical analysis of the status of women in higher education during the past 25 years."

(Carol J. Auster Gender and Society)

"Shattering the Myths is an unsettling book for women and should be the same for men. In essence, little has changed in the last 30 years to substantively improve the status of women in higher education and other professions or the cultural underpinnings that would make status advancement possible... Well researched."

(Susan R. Griffith Planning for Higher Education)

"Judith Glazer-Raymo is the Susan Faludi of higher education, portraying the frustrated ambitions of women in the academy and the backlash against them. Everyone interested in what has happened to women in the academy during the past twenty years should read this important and insightful book."

(Sheila Slaughter, Center for the Study of Higher Education, University of Arizona)
