Situated within the Austrian context, this qualitative study examines the gender subtexts that reproduce inequity in universities. In the past several decades, Austria has implemented a robust set of policies for addressing gender inequity. While administrators and faculty who participated in our study believed that gender equity policies were necessary, they also recognized that subtle forms of gender discrimination have persisted and perhaps even increased as a result of these policies. Our findings, which demonstrate how gender subtexts are both communicated and resisted, are relevant for postsecondary systems facing sustained inequity despite anti-discrimination policies.
