This book provides a discussion of women faculty members' experiences on college and university campuses and examines their thoughts, perceptions, responsibilities, and status in the academy. Most specifically, this book explores the differences between male and women faculty in the academy; women faculty insight into teaching, research and service; how women faculty perceive their work environment; and the stress of faculty evaluation regarding tenure and promotion, and sharing of success stories and lessons learned. The author's intentions is to share authentic narratives of women faculty members, in their own voices. The voices that are selected for this book are from different disciplines; some participants are junior faculty while others are senior faculty. All of the participants share their eyewitness accounts of how they successfully navigated the road to the professorate. This discussion is critical at this junction in the history of higher education pertaining to gender equity. Women counterpart to male faculty members provide a very visible and meaningful role on campuses. with all of the positive roles that women faculty play on campuses, women faculty report that they are still experiencing, to some degree, less satisfaction and greater challenges than their male counterparts in many aspects of their profession.

This riveting and very important collection of personal accounts is a much needed work that focuses on the daily struggles women faculty have had to overcome in higher education. While the stories are inspiring and thought-provoking, `Coping with Gender Inequities...' makes a valid and timely argument that there remains a vast amount of work that needs to be done in terms inclusion and equity for women in the Academy. It clearly outlines the hegemonic power structures females, as graduate students and later as female faculty, have had to navigate through to cope with gender biases, salary gaps, tenure and promotion discrepancies, uneven workloads, and lack of appreciation and recognition. Readers inside and outside of higher ed will appreciate this collection and will find it applicable. -- Kathy Previs, Associate Professor, Eastern Kentucky University
I commend Sherwood and Pam in their ability to have captured through conversations the dichotomy that exist between male and female colleagues in higher education. It is no secret that progress has been made toward women advancement in various positions of academia. Discrimination based on gender, ethnicity, and sex-role stereotypes in education are common within bureaucratic school governance. These authors have given voice to the marginalization of women and the atrocities of the inequities of gender discrimination. -- Valjeaner Brewington Ford, Professor, School of Education, University of North Carolina Pembroke
"Critical Conversations" provides unique insight into the real experiences of women as they navigate the culture of American Universities. While there is no blame and shame, there is much candor that can inform efforts to realize the contributions of women as scholars and teachers. -- Sharon P. Robinson, president and CEO, AACTE
