Handbook for Women Scholars: Strategies for Success.
Spencer, Mary L.; And Others
Articles on discrimination against women scholars and information on change strategies and resource groups are presented. The status and self-expressed needs of women scholars, as revealed in a recent survey of over 1,000 San Francisco Bay respondents, are considered in an article entitled "Status and Needs of Women Scholars" (Mary L. Spencer and Eva F. Brandford). In addition, categorized information is presented on women's advocacy groups; women's caucuses and committees of professional associations; women's research and resource centers; and career, financial, and legal aids for women scholars. Next, the transcription of conversations with Asian, Black, Hispanic, and Native American female scholars focuses on the double discrimination of being female and minority. A bibliography is included. Invited papers and authors include the following: "Alchemy in Academe: Survival Strategies for Female Scholars" (Linda L. Nielson); "Benchmark for the 80's" (Jessie Bernard); "Acquiring Skills for the Funding Search" (Arlene Kaplan Daniels); "Mary Daly: A Decade of Academic Harassment and Feminist Survival" (Janice Raymond); and "In Pursuit of the Well-Rounded Life: Women Scholars and the Family" (Mary Crawford). A survival guide and articles on filing grievances and promoting change are also included. (SW)
