Degrees of Difference : Women, Men, and the Value of Higher Education Paperback / softback


This volume investigates the dissonance between the supposed advantage held by educated women and their continued lack of economic and political power.

Niemi explains the developments of the so-called "female advantage" and "boy crisis" in American higher education, setting them alongside socioeconomic and racial developments in women's and men's lives throughout the last 40 years.

Exploring the relationship between higher education credentials and their utility in creating political, economic, and social success, Degrees of Difference identifies ways in which gender and academic achievement contribute to women's and men's power to shape their lives.

This important book brings new light to the issues of power, gender identities, and the role of American higher education in creating gender equity.
