A Report to the President from the Committee on the Status of Professional Women at Yale.
Yale Univ., New Haven, CT.
The Committee on the Status of Professional Women at Yale was charged by the University's President "to review the present participation of women in teaching and administration at Yale, to explore ways of increasing the participation of women under existing policies, and to suggest revisions in existing policies and procedures in order to increase such participation." This report concludes that an unacceptably high number of women at Yale do not reach the professional fulfillment to which their training ought to entitle them. Women receive 14 percent of the doctorates, but account for only 3 percent of the appointments at assistant professor rank or above in the Faculty of Arts and Sciences. The absence of women at the administrative level is equally glaring. Twenty-six recommendations are made to help remedy this situation. A brief discussion of the special problem of the research associate is included in the appendix, as well as tables indicating the number and percent of women students, Ph.D.'s, and faculty in 11 major departments.
