Final Report of the Ad Hoc Committee on the Status of Women in the Historical Profession.
American Historical Association, Washington, DC.
On February 21, 1970, the American Historical Association established an ad hoc committee to study the status of women in the profession. The instructions to the committee were as follows: (1) to commission studies and collect statistics and other information on the numbers, positions, and treatment of women in the historical profession at all levels; (2) to arrange sessions and hold hearings during the 1970 annual convention of the Association, and subsequent conventions as necessary, so as to make public its own and other studies and provide opportunity for other members of the profession to present independent testimony or comment on the studies so presented; (3) to publish and circulate widely the results of its studies and others presented at conventions; (4) to make recommendations for action by the American Historical Association in 1970 and subsequent years on matters affecting the status of women in the profession; and (5) to receive and solicit information relating to specific instances of discrimination. This document presents a report of the findings and recommendations of that committee. (Author/HS)
