CHOICE Review

This valuable volume explores the impact of Title IX, the landmark education amendments of 1972, which covered many realms of academic life. The authors offer sections on the women's movement of the 1960s, the gender difficulties in US education from kindergarten through secondary school, and transformations in higher education, the workplace, sports, and public policy. Each section contains succinct but highly useful historical analyses, followed by revealing annotated interviews with renowned and not-so-well-known figures whose lives have been altered by Title IX. The interviewees' actual words are liberally included, but so too are comments and explanations about educational, social, cultural, intellectual, political, and personal developments. Closing with "Reflections," the authors underscore their book's core messages, including the need to both applaud gender equity and seek greater changes, the importance of learning from history but not remaining mired in it, and the requisite fight for social justice. Hanson, Guilfoy, and Pillai (all, Education Development Center Inc.) envision a three-pronged approach to fostering greater gender equity: relying on community, employing the law and institutions while seeking systemic change, and turning to education as a "liberating force." The book contains a neatly drawn "gender equity timeline." Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above. R. C. Cottrell California State University, Chico
