About Women in Higher Education
Established in 1992, this independent monthly publication was started after the editor/publisher received a small inheritance from a great aunt who was a milliner in the 1920s, and who would have been described today as a radical feminist.
Its mission is to encourage, empower and enrage professional women on campuses across the country to broaden the acceptance of women’s contributions and values, improving both higher education and society in general. With subscribers throughout the U.S, Canada, and abroad, it is available digitally and in print and is sold on a subscription basis.
