"This book is an essential resource for helping Women's Studies and other faculty conceptualize and carry out feminist and activist projects outside the classroom. Full of concrete examples and multiple resources, the provocative and thoughtful approaches detailed here will challenge and inform one's thinking, teaching, and research."
-Frances A. Maher, co-author of "The Feminist Classroom
"A valuable collection of essays that will interest anyone engaged in teaching some version of feminism or activism, whether labeled as such or not. Reading across these different circumstances and efforts is both illuminating and inspiring."
-Marjorie L. DeVault, author of "Liberating Method: Feminism and Social Research
"This collection is sure to stimulate interest in trying to connect the classroom with the wider world of feminist organizing and action projects. The diversity of experiences on which faculty report is broad indeed, and the frankness with which they discuss the problems as well as the rewards is reassuring. There is something here for every teacher to find relevant and inspiring."
-Myra Marx Ferree, author of "Controversy and Coalition: The New Feminist Movement Across Four Decades of Change
