This forum will address some of the issues related to gender and power that are faced by female instructors in the classroom. Female instructors may experience challenges to their authority or find themselves confronted by social and cultural stereotypes which affect classroom dynamics. New instructors may not anticipate these issues will occur while seasoned instructors may find them occurring frequently. This forum offers some theoretical background on why this may happen, and provides an opportunity to exchange ideas
and reactions to this issue.
