4 Women Academia Blogs to Follow

Women College professors — stats show that there are not only less in the academia world, but they also earn a smaller salary than male professors. While the XX gender may be overshadowed by their male counterparts, some women professors have definitely taken the spotlight in the academia world. The bloggers listed below are successful at not only giving you a better insight to what it's like enriching the minds of the future, but can also give you some really interesting and topical brain-challenging subjects to discuss at your next party or luncheon for example. That said, if you want to sound like a Miss. Smartypants with various subjects, then make sure to check out the four women professors blog's we've hand selected below.

Little Professor is a blog written by Dr. Miriam Elizabeth Burstein of Brock Port University in New York. She specializes in Victorian Studies and British Literature, therefore her blog heavily covers the Victorian and Romance era. While it tends focus on her specialties—she discusses her research and writes reviews about Victorian books— she also manages to veer off for a bit and tries to inject some humor to some of her pieces.

Critical Mass is a blog written by Erin O'Conner, a former professor from the University of Pennsylvania who left the world of academia after falling disenchanted with how higher education is dealt with in the U.S. That said, the blog is dedicated to highlighting the faulty system of the academic world and what it means for the future of our children.

University Diaries is a blog written by Margaret Soltan, and English professor at George Washington University. She more or less focuses on all things university including campus life, online colleges, scams, as well as policies occurring at colleges around the U.S.

Lastly, Science Professor is a blog written by a woman physical sciences professor who not only blogs about her experiences as an woman instructor, but also covers an arrange of topics including: feminism, balancing a life of working couples, and ethics just to name a few.
