Kersh, Renique – NASPA Journal About Women in Higher Education, 2018

Ward, Kelly; Wolf-Wendel, Lisa – NASPA Journal About Women in Higher Education, 2017
When is a good time to have children? Where is a good place to raise a family? Should I work full time? These and other questions are common for faculty looking to combine work and family.

West, Nicole M. – NASPA Journal About Women in Higher Education, 2017

Turner, Paaige K.; Norwood, Kristen; Noe, Charlotte – NASPA Journal About Women in Higher Education, 2013
Despite progress, women are still disproportionally underrepresented in leadership positions in higher education. Women must contend with a glass ceiling, which we argue is constituted by discourses of impossibility and femininity. These discourses discourage women from recognizing their qualifications, continuing to develop skills, and making a…

Pasque, Penny A. – NASPA Journal About Women in Higher Education, 2013
Research cannot be conducted without conscious or unconscious use of underlying theoretical principles (Broido & Manning, 2002). As such, even studies that seem void of theoretical underpinnings subscribe to some semblance of theoretical principles. Broido and Manning (2002) argue that postmodernism, feminist theory, and critical theory, among…

Women who move into and work within administration in higher education face many struggles.

Vaccaro, Annemarie – NASPA Journal About Women in Higher Education, 2011
Although Robin Morgan argued that sisterhood is powerful (1970) and forever (2003), results from this case study show that sisterhood is not easily achieved, even in women's groups in which support for women was a formal goal. Narratives of eight women faculty, middle managers, and top administrators reveal that organizational sexism and women's…
