Notes:

"Based on interviews with female faculty members at various stages in their careers, this compelling resource examines how women faculty members juggle the extraordinary demands of their personal lives with the pressures of their academic careers. Challenges of the Faculty Career for Women explores and offers recommendations about such commonplace issues as choosing between and balancing work and family, defining identity and priorities, facing elder-care issues, and working in a historically male-dominated environment."
