Theory and Praxis: Women's and Gender Studies at Community Colleges is the first book that focuses on women's and gender studies at community colleges. It brings together voices from faculty, researchers, program administrators, and students to examine the promise and challenges that these programs have in higher education.

The topics addressed include: historical narratives and current data on women's and gender studies at community colleges; theoretical discussions of critical and liberatory pedagogies in the community college classroom and an articulation of these spaces as inherently activist sites; strategies and suggestions for curriculum development, co-curricular programming, and assessment; and critiques of the positioning of community colleges within neoliberal frameworks.
