This chapter is from Empowering Women in Higher Education and Student Affairs: Theory, Research, Narratives, and Practice from Feminists Perspective, edited by Penny A. Pasque and Shelley Errington Nicholson.

This book addresses the experiences and position of women students, from application to college through graduate school, and the barriers they encounter; the continuing inequalities in the rates of promotion and progression of women and other marginalized groups to positions of authority, and the gap in earnings between men and women; and pays particular attention to how race and other social markers impact such disparities, contextualizing them across all institutional types.
