Description - Coming of Age in Academe by Jane Roland Martin

This text explores the plight of feminist scholars. The author contends that feminist scholars have traded their idealism and concerns about their lived experience for a place in the academy. She looks at the ways that feminists working in the academy find themselves estranged from each other and how estrangement in general is the "membership fee" the academy exacts on all of its members - and feminist scholars in particular. The book concludes that this dissociation can be stopped only by radically reforming the gendered system on which the academy is based, with feminist scholars leading the fight.
