A struggle arose over who would succeed Mary Emma Woolley as president of Mount Holyoke College in 1937. Over her 36 year tenure, Woolley had transformed Mount Holyoke into an elite women's college in which leadership in the administration and faculty was almost exclusively female. Beginning in 1933, a group of male trustees determined to change the college. This book tells the story of how this group dominated the search process and ultimately convinced the majority of the trustees to offer the presidency to Mr. Roswell Gray Ham. This narrative could not have been told until after 1999, when material relating to the search process (memoranda, minutes of executive board sessions, letters, etc.) became available. The participants in this story speak in their own voices--faculty, alumnae, alumnae trustees on the search committee, male trustees who engineered the appointment, and American and international feminists. Among the prominent persons, in addition to outgoing president Woolley, is trustee Frances Perkins, U.S. Secretary of Labor, also an alumna. Woolley, the vast majority of the faculty, and a significant number of alumnae were strongly opposed to the hiring of Ham, and they fought back (unsuccessfully). The opposition also included many from outside the Mount Holyoke community, including the leadership of the American Association of University Women. This strong opposition has led historian Joyce Avrech Berkman to conclude, in an historiographical foreword, that the book breaks new ground in our understanding of 1930s feminism.

Ample evidence has been provided that women historically have suffered numerous social, political, and institutional barriers to their entrance and success in the sciences. The articles in this anthology refocus the discussion and reflect the interdisciplinary nature of the issues surrounding women in the sciences. While the barriers that women have faced as researchers, subjects of research, students of science, and theorists have been well documented, this anthology breaks new ground. It presents the ways women succeed in the sciences, overcome these historical barriers, and contribute to the social practice of science and the philosophy of science in both theory and practice.

Although female athletes are successful in all types of sport, in many countries sport is still a male domain. This book examines and compares the sporting experiences of women from different countries around the world and offers the first systematic and cross-cultural analysis of the topic of women in sport. Sport and Women presents a wealth of new research data, including in-depth case-studies of 16 countries in North and South America, Asia, Eastern and Western Europe and Africa. In addition, the book offers comparative assessments of the extent to which women are represented in global sport and the opportunities that women have to participate in decision-making processes in sport. The book illuminates a wide range of key international issues in women's sport, such as cultural barriers to participation and the efficacy of political action. It is therefore essential reading for anybody with an interest in the sociology, culture and politics of sport.

This book examines the lives and contributions of American women physicists who were active in the years following World War II, during the middle decades of the 20th century. It covers the strategies they used to survive and thrive in a time where their gender was against them. The percentage of PhD’s in physics has risen for 6% in 1983 to 20% in 2012 (an all-time high for women). By understanding the history of women in physics, these gains can continue. It discusses to major classes of women physicists; those who worked on military projects, and those who worked in industrial laboratories and at universities largely in the late 1940s and 1950s. While it includes minimal discussion of physics and physicists in the 1960s and later, this book focuses on the challenges and successes of women physicists in the years immediately following World War II and before the eras of affirmative actions and the use of the personal computer.

"In Yards and Gates, Laurel Thatcher Ulrich and her contributors argue that there have always been women at Harvard. The illuminating essays, letters, diary entries, and illustrations in this groundbreaking collection look at Harvard history from the colonial period to the present, giving primary attention to women and especially to the history of Radcliffe. They also demonstrate the value of looking at American history through a gendered lens. Here are stories about aspiration as well as marginality, and about women and men who opened once locked gates."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
