Interviews and Reviews
“Kelly J. Baker with Sexism Ed,” Midtown Reader Blog (March 2019):
People imagine that because higher education is more progressive, more liberal, sexism isn’t as much of a problem; Baker said they’re wrong.
“Book Review: Sexism Ed by Kelly J. Baker,” Dósis (July 17, 2018):
At its best, Sexism Ed intertwines personal narrative and concrete research. Even when Baker is optimistic, there is profound sadness in reading her essays; it’s clear that Baker herself is one of the many women wronged by systemic inequality in academia.
“Sexism Is A Feature of the System: An Interview with Kelly Baker,” Pacific Standard (April 24, 2018):
