"This book offers reflections by well known women's studies scholars, tracing their diverse experiences in the classroom and in the university over a forty-year span. The field of Women's Studies has changed dramatically since its first introduction into the University. The reflections in this book address the many questions that have been raised about women's studies over the years, including: whether women's studies should be considered a "discipline" given its inherently inter-disciplinary nature; how to address differences among women; what is the role of males in the study of gender; and many others."--BOOK JACKET.
