Discrimination against Women in Higher Education. A 15 Year Survey. Promotional Practices at Brooklyn College CUNY: 1955-1970, All Ranks-Tenured and Untenured.
Babey-Brooke, Anna M.; Amber, R. B.
This report presents data on the number and percentages of men and women in all ranks from professor to instructor in the various departments at Brooklyn College from 1955 through 1970. The percentages of women and men in a senior and junior rank, respectively, are also calculated for each department and comments are made. Comparisons are made on the net gain or loss for men and women in six departments: Education, English, Speech, Biology, Chemistry, and Physics between the years 1955 to 1956 and 1968 to 1970. Men gained in all 6 departments, women in 1: Education, and lost in the other 5. It appears that in not one single department do women equal or outnumber men in the senior ranks. In the rank of associate professorships in some departments women equal or outnumber men, but they seem to be unable to break through to the level of full professorships. (AF)
