Sex Discrimination at the University of Maryland.
Sandler, Bernice
This report examines sex discrimination in 15 departments in the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Maryland. Of these departments, 9 had no women who were full professors, four had one with that rank, one department had two and one, three. All of these departments had admitted at least 24% women among their graduate students for the Fall 1969. In most cases, as one went up the academic ladder, from graduate student to full professor, the proportion of women dropped sharply. It was also found that women do not move up as rapidly as their male colleagues, that they are generally excluded from the power structure, rarely head of departments or in high administrative positions, and tend to receive lower salaries than men in comparable ranks. The percentages of women graduate students and women teachers in the 15 departments are given in the appendix. (AF)
