Women and the power to change by Florence Howe( Book )

6 editions published in 1975 in English and Undetermined and held by 974 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The effect of the women's movement on the lives of academic women potentially has a major impact on college and university campuses. Although the movement has already reached thousands of students, chiefly through women's studies programs, it has not yet begun to change the institutions of higher education. The four women who are the authors of this book like other academic women have seen their lives off campus change over the past four or five years. Their experiences led each of these women in different academic organizations to press for women's studies courses, for child care, or other institutional changes. In this document, the four women chart the histories of their lives as feminists in the world of higher education. And as they do so, they inevitably approach the issue of institutional reform. No consensus is reached on the manner or extent of desirable reform, and though these women of dissimilar backgrounds and personalities agree on much, they make no attempt to disguise their differences. All are torn between the awareness of the "formidable power of male-conceived and male-controlled law" and their intense desire to see feminism "overthrow the empire -- not in exchange for an equally oppressive matriarchy, but rather to achieve the equalization of power."

The divided academy: professors and politics by Everett Carll Ladd( Book )

4 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 855 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

College and university faculty, together with their students, have established a reputation as being among the most liberal-left political groups in the United States. The extent to which that reputation is deserved and reasons why political liberality is so dominant on the nation's campuses are the subjects of this document. The empirical evidence comes from a national survey in which 60,000 faculty members in more than 300 institutions responded. Variations of political orientation associated with different academic disciplines, age, and religion are also described and analyzed, but the factor found to be most significant in explaining the left-liberal politics of professors is their commitment to the intellectual community. Chapters cover; (1) the politics of the intellectuals; (2) the ideology of academics: intersections of national and campus affairs; (3) academic disciplines and politics; (4) discipline and politics: the case of the social sciences; (5) class, intellectuality, and academic politics; (6) intellectuality and social background: the liberalism of Jewish academics; (7) the demography of academic politics: age and social background; (8) issues of the 1960's: the ear of campus protests; (9) persisting effects of the 1960's: the 1972 presidential election; (10) issues of the 1970's: unionism and the professoriate; and (11) conclusions.
