Abstract

Four women’s studies scholars in different positions—two lecturers, a graduate student, and a professor—discuss the relationship between feminism and university reform. Although they find it encouraging to see the previously declining feminist movement within universities enter into a new period of renewal after the Candlelight Revolution and the Me-Too movement, they realize there are many reform tasks ahead, including the “irrational school resource distribution” and the “anti-feminist classroom culture.” It is thrilling, though, to confirm that we can arrive at new diagnoses and innovative alternatives through feminism.
