Reviews

These 11 papers are mostly success stories-accounts of the rising numbers and prominence of women in higher education in the US and the UK and its dominions...So much opposition and hostile mythology to combat-higher education was beyond women's capabilities, or it would make them unfit for their natural roles and duties. Higher education training for the job market threatened and insulted their male competitors. This was not an easy fight, as these essays highlighting women who led the charge, often succeeded, and who are properly given credit show. Summing Up: Recommended. J. T. Rosenthal, SUNY at Stony Brook, CHOICE Reviews Women in Higher Education, 1850-1970 should be included in the libraries of those faculty and in-stitutions that offer women's history and/or higher education programs. This book is a testament to the artistic research and activist scholarship both of Stortz and of Panayotidis, whose life and career ended unexpectedly and far too early. Patrick Dilley, Spring 2017 issue (vol.29, no.1) of Historical Studies in Education / Revue d'histoire de l'education
