We agreed to write this chapter about women in the academy enthusiastically and without hesitation. We thought we knew well the challenges and opportunities that are presented to emerging and established female academics, since we have forged our own careers in a variety of tertiary institutions and in several different countries. This was an opportunity to share our respective journeys towards more senior positions with our female colleagues.
