Published in 1998 by Fernwood Publishing and edited by Jacqueline Stalker
and Susan Prentice, in a book called The Illusion Of Inclusion: Women and
Post-Secondary Education, this personal herstory uses humour and pathos to
explore recent academic experiences of an older, working-class woman of size.
It chronicles her attendance at an elite university designed initially for
rich, young, white males; but more recently restructured to accommodate -if not
celebrate- elite, slender young women.
