PressestimmenAn extremely important book... Glazer-Raymo demonstrates that although gender discrimination has evolved and now appears in different forms, it nonetheless remains a characteristic feature of academe, and women academics continue to pay a disproportionate price. -- Florence A. Hamrick Journal of Higher Education [Glazer-Raymo] blends a life history approach with the current statistical results of large research studies. NWSA Journal I highly recommend this book. It is useful for everyone in higher education, particularly for women who may find the information and stories resonating with their own lives. The author successfully deconstructs higher education using a feminist perspective and provides suggestions for future action. Community College Journal of Research and Practice An insightful and critical analysis of the status of women in higher education during the past 25 years. -- Carol J. Auster Gender and Society Shattering the Myths is an unsettling book for women and should be the same for men. In essence, little has changed in the last 30 years to substantively improve the status of women in higher education and other professions or the cultural underpinnings that would make status advancement possible... Well researched. -- Susan R. Griffith Planning for Higher Education 2004
