This has not been an easy journey and the practitioners of this new approach have faced numerous odds as all pioneering endeavours encounter. This journey is a story that needs to be told and the present book attempts to do this by charting the trajectories of few women's studies scholars and their academic sojourn.

The point of emphasis is that the writings of scholars like Cynthia Enloe who dared to break boundaries and were questioned earlier have now become part of an acclaimed field of research. This volume explores the metamorphosis of women's studies from the early days to date and draws upon the contributors' diverse experiences and concerns, but all revolving around the same key issue: gender."@en ;
