Women, power and the academy: from rhetoric to reality
The volume focuses on universities as one of the key institutions providing women with the education and leadership skills necessary for their advancement and the role universities themselves in the shaping of a society's cultural fabric and thus of attitudes towards women. Both aspects are examined on the basis of case studies carried out in western and non-western societies.
