This is a collection of op-eds from women in various positions at colleges and universities. They're writing about the topic of women and power in the academy, addressing the topic from a broad web of intersections: harassment, tenure and promotion, parenting, race, adjuncting, research and teaching.
I've only started reading these; I've just gotten to the image "Pay Scale" by Ellen Weinstein. I wanted to share in case others are interested.
So far, the most memorable essay was by Whitney N. Laster Pirtle, where she applies a concept called the "weathering hypothesis" (older women of color have a worse infant mortality rate because of the accumulated stresses of racism) to her experiences becoming a mother during graduate school.
