Over the past two decades greater numbers of courses and programs in colleges and universities have emerged that explore the lives and roles of women who have been engaged in shaping and determining the cultural contexts in which we live, yet parity for women and girls within schools, the workplace, and the academy have changed only slightly. The differential treatment between males and females in classrooms from the nursery school to the postdoctoral experience impact females' academic and career opportunities, social treatment, and participation in power structures. Simultaneous to the growth in courses, there has been a growing faction within the academy who have voiced the belief that the work on and for women and education has been accomplished. Perhaps because of this pervasive belief and because inequities have taken a subtler, but deeper form of expression, we have never been in greater need of a book series devoted to Research on Women and Education.
