Praise For…

"Each of the essays in this volume offers compelling examples of the transformative power of women’s leadership in higher education at all types of institutions. Beyond detailing familiar and persistent barriers that have slowed women’s progress at the highest levels in the academy, the authors showcase models for reforming institutional and organizational cultures in ways that promote structural change and value women’s authentic leadership styles."
— Lynn Pasquerella

"With these profiles of twelve extraordinary women, we gain rich, new insights into the myriad ways they both navigated—and transformed—higher education. Profoundly idealistic—and profoundly pragmatic—they are the role models we need at a time when women still have yet to win their fair share of top leadership roles. Read this book for its powerful lessons—and equally powerful inspiration.”
— Paula A. Johnson

"A seminal and impressively informative work of outstanding and meticulous scholarship, Junctures in Women's Leadership: Higher Education is a thoughtful and thought-provoking read and will prove to be an especially and welcome addition to Women's Studies curriculum reading lists." 
— Midwest Book Review

"The volume succeeds in its aim to provide examples of women’s leadership without essentialist understandings of a 'woman’s approach.' One of the volume’s strengths is the diversity of the women profiled and the variety of institutions they serve or served. It offers largely positive and sometimes glowing assessments of each woman profiled."
