What It’s Like to Be a Woman in the Academy - The Chronicle of Higher Education
The historian Joan Wallach Scott once warned that scholars couldn't insert gender into their research as though adding a new room on a house already built; they'd have to begin again from the bottom. If the university is to commit itself to gender equality, if it really wants to redistribute power, then everything must change, from the broadest policies to the smallest habits. Traditions will have to be broken; the past will no longer be perfectly reproduced. Working from a new blueprint can mean challenge and error, but it can produce unexpected success. I have no idea what the new university will look like, but I'm eager to see it take shape.
