We'll Do It Ourselves: Combatting Sexism in Education.
Rosen, David, Ed.; And Others
The idea that women and gay people must "do it themselves" forms the central theme throughout this book. The essays document the oppression women and gay people experience, and describe ways in which alternative futures can be built. In "channelling," the author describes the process by which sex roles are developed and hardened. Two essays graphically depict the interrelationship between racism and sexism. Another article reviews the literature documenting the way institutions of higher education discriminate against women. From his own experience and knowledge of gay struggles at colleges and universities, an author writes of "The Oppression of Gay People." The remaining essays describe practical ways in which women and gay people can begin to build alternative futures for themselves. Most chapters include a list of resources or a complete bibliography.
