Report of the Subcommittee on the Status of Academic Women on the Berkeley Campus.
California Univ., Berkeley.
This report concludes that the University -- consciously or not -- is practicing discrimination against women as evidenced by the scarcity of women holding academic appointments. The report starts with a series of recommendations to alleviate this situation and a background discussion of the recommendations; the bulk is devoted to 15 appendices dealing with different aspects of the status of academic women. The appendices include: (1) a study of the effect of the nepotism rule on women; (2) percentage of women at diferent academic levels; (3) employment rates of women of different academic levels; (4) number of men and women on active faculty at different ranks and in selected departments through the years; (5) comparative rates of attrition and promotion of men and women, 1920-70; (6) an examination of the insurance system; (7) membership on committees of the Academic Senate; (8) admission to the graduate division; (9) financial support of graduate students; (10) total number of degrees awarded to women by year and field; (11) relative "success" of women in obtaining degrees; (12) award of doctorates in distinguished departments; (13) number of years to obtain doctorates; (14) survey of graduate women students regarding difficulties encountered and suggestions for change; and (15) the status of women in research units.
