Abstract: This paper looks at the establishment of Women’s Studies programs in selected Australian universities. It highlights the resistance to Women’s Studies as an academic knowledge by some feminists outside of the academy as well as non-feminists within the academy. This paper argues that connections to the Women’s Liberation Movement and the difficulties encountered by feminists when introducing Women’s Studies into the academy made some feminists suspicious of the value of theory for feminism, especially in relation to a political agenda. Men have had every advantage of us in telling their own story. Education has been theirs in so much higher a degree; the pen has been in their hands. (Austen, Persuasion ([1818] 1946)
