The three subsections of the book are: (a) The Past Decade: Women's Ways of Knowing Applied; (b) New Directions: Connected and Collabora- tive Knowing; and (c) New Directions: Culture, Power, and Knowing. In fact, discussions about WWK and implications for future work abound throughout the book; the division is not a strict one.
