"A wonderful book that succeeds in demystifying the alienation and mistrust so many women feel in relation to the world of words, abstract ideas, and logic."
- Evelyn Fox Keller, MIT

"Like a hot pepper, the bite from this book comes after it has been consumed.… A framework for future research on women, knowledge, and identity."
- New York Times Book Review

"The sleeper of the decade. It is the 'Our Minds Ourselves' women have been waiting for."
- Christina Robb, Boston Globe

"A richly rewarding book that opens new vistas in feminist studies and in the general study of human knowledge."
- Jerome Bruner, New School For Social Research

"This extraordinary book attempts to map previously uncharted terrain. A rich supply of resources for feminist
analysis, public policy—and for theoretical and political struggles."
- Sandra Harding, Women's Review of Books

"This important book … encourages one to think in new ways about what constitutes knowledge and therefore about the aims of education for both women and men."
- Carol Gilligan, Harvard University

Description
Despite the progress of the women's movement, many women still feel silenced in their families and schools. This moving and insightful bestseller, based on in-depth interviews with 135 women, explains why they feel this way. Updated with a new preface exploring how the authors' collaboration and research developed, this tenth anniversary edition addresses many of the questions that the authors have been asked repeatedly in the years since Women's Ways of Knowing was originally published.
