She Writes Press News: Announcing Transforming Knowledge, by Jean Fox O'Barr

A record of O’Barr’s personal and professional journey—one that paralleled the growth of the women’s movement and the development of women’s studies—Transforming Knowledge reflects the belief that women’s studies is as much about institutional change as it is about content. The first section provides an overview of the conceptual frameworks O’Barr developed to analyze institutions and their hesitancy to embrace change; the second describes how she created feminist change and found the frameworks for explaining it to others; and the third is retrospective in tone, reflecting on lessons learned over four decades of doing this work.

Now retired, Jean O'Barr founded and led the Duke University Women's Studies Program for two decades. She is a premier feminist thinker, educator, and activist, and an author of many books, including Women Imagine Change and Feminism in Action, and is a former editor in chief of SIGNS: Journal of Women in Culture and Society.

What a fabulous topic. As someone who lived through much of what it's about, I can't wait to read it. Congratulations to Jean O'Barr. Thank you for your service to women and feminism through all these years.

This looks excellent. We cannot possibility have enough positive female role models to reflect on, to remember. 

Congrat's Jean O'Barr. This book seems to be very exciting :)
