Unfinished Agendas

New and Continuing Gender Challenges in Higher Education

This revealing volume examines the current role and status of women in higher education—and suggests a direction for the future. Judith Glazer-Raymo and other distinguished scholars and administrators assess the progress of women in academe using three lenses: the feminist agenda as a work in progress, growing internal and external challenges to women’s advancement, and the need for active engagement with the challenges at hand.

Drawing on the latest research, the contributors explore issues faced by women as newly minted Ph.D.s, as faculty members, as administrators, and as academic leaders. They describe women's struggles with the multiple and often conflicting demands of productivity, accountability, family-work responsibility, and the subconscious "dance of identities" within a variety of cultural contexts.

Shedding light on the past, present, and future of women in higher education, this authoritative book concludes with recommendations for meeting new and ongoing gender challenges in the next decade.

Reviews

This excellent volume offers a sobering assessment of women's situation in higher education.

- Choice

Unfinished Agendas is an impressive follow-up to Glazer- Raymo’s 1999 book Shattering the Myths: Women in Academe... This book achieves satisfying breadth without watering down what is a vitally important—and complex—topic for those concerned about the future of the academic workforce.

- Melissa McDaniels - Academe

Masterfully handled... This book, published in the midst of a period of extreme financial turbulence, is a fine portrait of a set of institutions whose contribution to the students it serves may need reviewing.

- S.L. Sutherland - Times Higher Education

Unfinished Agendas is a book that any scholar, leader, student, and staff member in higher education should read. Not only does the book provide valuable insight into the position of women... it also provides practical recommendations of ways to alter policies, discourses, practices, and cultures to move higher education in a more pluralistic direction.

- Linda Serra Hagedorn - Journal of College Student Retention

Unfinished Agendas is a worthwhile book.
