Publisher Description

[Reprinted from Women and Social Change: Feminist Activism in Canada, Janice Ristock and Jeri Wine. eds.. Toronto: James Lorimer, 1991] Feminists who have reflected on feminism in academia are deeply cognizant of women's studies' activist roots and its highly political orientation to change (e.g., Bunch and Pollack, 1983; Howe, 1975, 1983; Rich, 1975; Schniedewind, 1985; Treichler, 1986). Women's studies' happy, if somewhat precarious, position would not exist without activism in the women's movement. Indeed, the very existence of women's studies is one of the movement's major triumphs, perhaps the premier accomplishment that differentiates between this and earlier waves of feminism.
