Summary
This book gives voice to the experiences of women of color--women of African, Native American, Latina, East Indian, Korean, and Japanese descent--as students pursuing terminal degrees and as junior and senior faculty members navigating the academy, grappling with the dilemmas encountered by others and themselves as they exist at the intersections of their work and identities. Women of color are frequently relegated--on account of both race and womanhood--into monolithic categories that perpetuate oppression, subdue and suppress conflict, and silence voices. This book uses critical race feminism to place women of color in the center, rather than at the margins, of the discussion, theorizing, research and praxis of their lives as they co-exist in the dominant culture.--Publisher description, from p. [4] of cover
