This thematic volume addresses gender disparities in pay, professional support, and job security in both the higher education work force and the work force in the newer digital economy.

The purpose of this book is to explain the U.S. higher education precariat and the digital precariat to the world at large, and to document with overwhelming evidence that the precariat in higher education and in the Internet economy disproportionately involves women.

We hope that our book will help change the culture of silence. This book is a labor of love; in the long run, we hope that our work will encourage others to devote attention to some egregious problems that ultimately affect everyone.
