How do women academics survive? How can we empower women students? How can we develop feminist strategies in teaching and learning in higher education? Published in conjunction with the Women in Higher Education Network, this text explores these fundamental questions and presents strategies for changing and challenging the mainstream curriculum in higher education. In the first section, contributors present the problems women face in mainstream higher education, often using their own experiences to illustrate the issues. The experiences range from coping with motherhood and academics, to the situations faced by black and lesbian women. The second section explores methods of dealing with some of the issues that arise and suggests ways of empowering women in higher education. The final section examines strategies for adapting and challenging the mainstream curriculum in a range of disciplines. Containing chapters written from lecturer and student perspectives, this diverse collection should be of interest and practical use to all women lecturers and students in higher education on a personal and professional level.
