Community Colleges as Gender-Equitable Institutions
Townsend, Barbara K.
New Directions for Community Colleges, n142 p7-14 Sum 2008
In the mid-1990s, the author of this article edited a "New Directions for Community Colleges" volume on gender and power in the community college. One of the articles explored the extent to which women community college faculty members were on the margins in academe and within the community college itself. Over a decade later, the author has been asked to assess the extent to which community colleges today are gender equitable. In this chapter, the author does so by reflecting on how gender relations and gender equity were viewed in the 1995 volume. She then describes how she sees early twenty-first-century perceptions of gender relations and gender equity.
