Feminist Thinking and Librarianship in the 1990s: Issues and Challenges is an article by Sarah Pritchard, head librarian at UC Santa Barbara. Here is something from the intro:
Have we really progressed to a post-feminist era? Who is \"we\" and what is \"progress?\" Is there a feminist analysis of librarianship, and how can the profession be sexist when it is female-dominated? Are these merely \"social issues\" that distract from proper library service? I\'d like to sketch some frameworks for thinking about these questions; I can\'t give you all the answers, but I hope we can enlarge our understanding and our willingness to work together for change.
