Academic Women and Employment Discrimination: A Critical Annotated Bibliography. Cornell Industrial and Labor Relations Bibliography Series Number 16.
This annotated bibliography includes 179 citations of journal articles, books, organizational and research reports, papers, conference proceedings, and newspaper articles on sex discrimination in higher education and efforts to eliminate discrimination. Most of the materials have been published after 1970. An introduction to the bibliography provides an overview of the status of women professionals and students in academic institutions, and the changes in status that policy and litigation are helping to bring about. A statistical table presents information on the proportions of women students and faculty in selected American universities/colleges, and a second table provides summaries of court cases concerning discrimination against women professionals in academic institutions. Among the sex discrimination issues that the annotated bibliographic citations cover are tenure; institutional policy; Federal policy and legislation; court litigation; academic freedom; affirmative action; male and female differences in employment levels and salaries; marriage and careers; women scientists; sexual harassment; and the general labor market for women.
