    The eleven essays making up this book unite scholars from various disciplines to explore how feminists live, survive, and thrive in academia.

Specific themes include abortion rights activism, authority in the classroom, feminist mentoring, the role of women's studies programs, division of labor, and the role of theater and performance in enacting lasting change.
