Men's Studies Modified: The Impact of Feminism on the Academic Disciplines
Elsevier Science & Technology Books, 1981 - Dominance (Psychology). - 248 pages
This book is comprised of a number of articles written by women on the impact of feminism on academic disciplines. Fundamental to feminism is the premise that women have been 'left out' of codified knowledge, so that the world has been explained in terms of men but not women. The contributors explore not only how this happened but why. They document, discipline by discipline, the gain that feminism has made in establishing alternative processes and alternative knowledge and the effect these are having in modifying the academic curriculum.
