This volume explores the subtle connections among gender, language, and power. To illustrate the ways gender affects university students and teachers in the classroom, contributors analyze the differences in the ways male and female students write, interpret what they read, participate in classroom discussion, and interact with male and female faculty members. The essays consistently demonstrate the disadvantages experienced by most women university students and argue for educational reform that recognizes the important of gender in learning.
