Report of the AAUP Committee on The Employment and Status of Women Faculty and Women Graduate Students at Brown.
Lamphere, Louise; And Others
This report investigates the employment and status of women faculty and women graduate students at Brown University. Four different questionnaires designed to elicit factual and attitudinal information were addressed to departmental chairmen, male faculty members in general, women faculty members, and women graduate students. Statistics were also gathered as to the number of women teaching or employed for research, their ranks and their salaries. The report presents the data on the numbers and percentages of women faculty at Brown and their salaries, and discusses the results of the questionnaires, as well as of the interviews held with women faculty and women graduate students. These results indicated that women seeking full-time teaching jobs are likely to encounter discrimination. If they are single, they may be penalized early in their careers; if they are married, they may have problems in getting rank and salary commensurate with their qualifications. Salaries, however, of female faculty in regular ranks compared favorably with those of the male faculty. (AF)
