Powerful Subjects: Are Women Really Taking Over the University / Edition 1by Jocey Quinn

The mass participation of women students has literally changed the face of Higher Education, but this is the first work to explore the radical significance of this transformation. The book charts women's new role as the "normal" student in the global university. It examines how the "malestream" curriculum has responded to women's move from minority to majority and the development of feminist ideas: has knowledge itself been transformed?
Using in-depth case studies of diverse women studying in the UK, the book explores the interplay between access, curriculum and women's power, or lack of it, in the world outside the university. Lively, innovative and multi-dimensional, it probes questions of gender, generation, class, misogyny and racism, drawing on multiple theories to push at the boundaries of educational research.
Taking up current media controversy about female success and class divisions in education, "Are Women Taking over the University" will excite the general reader as well as students, policy makers, educational researchers and those interested in feminist ideas.
