Reviews

"Mintz and Rothblum's book gives voice to a vibrant, fascinating faculty of various ages, races and backgrounds who are all lesbian. These women share their compelling stories, bringing to light experiences ranging from the very closeted to those who have been 'out' in their jobs since their interviews. … Recommended for academic libraries, as well as for large lesbian and gay collections in public libraries." -- Jerilyn Veldof, Library Journal

"It's a book that should be read by all lesbians entering academia. Most of the narratives are positive, and many suggest that being out need not be a disadvantage in terms of tenure or promotion." -- The Lesbian Review of Books

"Readers will be drawn to one account because it resonates to their own experience or that of a friend, to another because it is stylishly written, to yet another because the institutional or geographical setting is familiar." -- Feminist Collections
