"This volume introduces readers to 20 women historians of multiple generationsinvolved in an organization called the Coordinating Committee on Women in the Historical Profession(CCWHP). Founded in 1969, CCWHP became an active force in educating, lobbying, and promoting newawarenesses in the historical profession. Thirty years ago, women's experiences were often ignoredin history textbooks, faculty were hired according to the old boy system, and young women were notencouraged to become college professors. All of the interviews in the collection are with women whohave been active in the organization over time. Pioneer historians such as Gerda Lerner, who was afounder of CCWHP, are included as well as new entrants to the profession such as Crystal Feimster, agraduate student representative to the group in the 1990s. They all share something of theirpersonal biographies as a basis for understanding their activism. Some came to the historyprofession with backgrounds in peace and civil rights, while others became activists thanks todiscriminatory practices in academia. They all believe in synthesizing their social and professionalideals. Recommended for all libraries." -J. Sochen, Northeastern Illinois University, Choice,February 2000
