Texas Woman’s University Announces New Book Series on Women Leaders

Texas Woman’s University has launched an interdisciplinary book series highlighting the accomplishments of courageous women. The TWU Book Series — Pioneering Women: Women Who Blazed Trails and Women Who Lead — has been developed in coordination with Texas A&M Press, which will assist in peer reviews and printing. The university aims to publish two books a year in the series. The TWU Book Series falls under the auspices of the Jane Nelson Institute for Women’s Leadership.

The first book in the series has been selected: Scared Fearless: An Unlikely Agent in the U.S. Secret Service. Written by Kathryn Clark Childers, the book details Childers’ experiences as one of the first female Secret Service agents in the United States. The book will be released in November.

“With this series, we will promote the stories of leading women who have often been overlooked,” said Claire Sahlin, professor of multicultural women’s and gender studies, interim dean of the TWU Graduate School and chair of the TWU Book Series editorial committee. “Our series will celebrate the contributions of women innovators in the arts, sciences, politics, business, and health sciences.”

Dr. Sahlin is a summa cum laude graduate of Bethel College in St. Paul, Minnesota, where she double majored in philosophy and psychology. She holds two master’s degrees and a Ph.D. in religion from Harvard University.
