Twenty-First Century Academic Feminism in the United States: Utopian Visions and Practical Actions.
Laslett, Barbara; Brenner, Johanna
Signs: Journal of Women in Culture and Society, v25 n4 p1231-35 Sum 2000
Academic feminists must confront class structure within the academy and women's studies. Changes in the academic work environment include: funding cuts, rapid growth of non-tenure-track faculty, and overproduction of Ph.D.s relative to jobs available (which exemplifies the class structure of academic feminists). Education is a social institution, with all the resulting inequities and hierarchies. (SM)
