Drawing on more than sixty interviews, this book examines women's struggle to gain authority in the academic profession and to use the at authority to change conventional practices. The authors argue that as women rise in academe, they are stymied at a certain level by the remaining force of the old norms which in the past barred women from professional life altogether.
