This paper will focus on one aspect of my PhD. and address itself particularly to the difficulties and dilemmas faced by feminist agents for change in universities. To be more specific it will look at the different feminist ways of working and the issues they address including the flexible and transitory positions of feminism. This study draws from a perspective which sees the feminist persona as multiple and which sees the different feminist identities determined by the tolerance levels within the politics of place. The inherent tensions between feminist practices will be examined in my Ph.D., as experienced by feminists located in a range of different areas within the university system.
