The advent of women's studies has brought a feminist perspective into the academy# and but has it made a difference there? Has it transformed our curriculum; has it reshaped our materials; has it altered our knowledge? In the essays collected here, nine distinguished scholars provide an overview of the differences the feminist perspective makes# and and could make# and in scholarship in the humanities and social sciences. Carefully documented and judiciously critical, these essays inform the reader about developments in feminist scholarship in literary criticism, the performing arts, religion, history, political science, economics, anthropology, psychology, and sociology. The authors point out achievements of lasting value and indicate how these might become an integral part of the various disciplines.
