The college woman's handbook : educating ourselves

Dobkin, Rachel.

New York : Workman Pub., c1995.

xiii, 640 p. : ill. ; 23 cm.

Comprehensive, passionate, detailed, up-to-date: like an Our Bodies,Our Selves for undergraduate and graduate women, The College Woman's Handbook gathers together a world of information and and resources and organizes it in one accessible, 656-page reference. From managing everyday expenses, to health, sexuality and birth control, to career issues, it addresses the hundreds of specific needs, questions and concerns that college women have. Written by two recent Barnard graduates, Rachel Dobkin and Shana Sippy, here are thirty-one chapters to help college women educate themselves in and out of the classroom. There are chapters on Academics--how to choose a major and find a mentor, manage study time, and counter sexism in the classroom where male students are called on as much as 12 times more often then female students. On Money. On Living Spaces. On Travel and Study Abroad. On Wellness-common campus illnesses, body image and eating disorders. Plus religion, personal safety, activism and volunteerism, and more. Sidebars provide instant information to dozens of topics--government loans, dietary supplements, issues of campus confidentiality. And throughout, quotes from college women around the country enrich and enliven each subject.
