The Half-Eaten Apple: A Look at Sex Discrimination in the University.
Scott, Ann
Reporter, p3-10 May 14 1970
Discrimination against women, though more covert than discrimination against blacks, has caused inestimable damage in self-esteem, wasted potential and supressed rage. Academic bias against women has been recently documented at several universities, and though the federal government through executive orders has specifically forbidden sex discrimination by federal contractors, most universities have taken no steps to formulate or implement affirmative action programs that would assure equal opportunity and prevent sex discrimination. This article examines the major job categories at the State University of New York at Buffalo and identifies the "problem areas" by faculties, departments, administration, staff, and student body. It discusses various discriminatory practices such as the nepotism rule, the "no-inbred-hiring policies," and tenure, and presents data on the numbers and percentages of women and men faculty, tenured faculty, graduate students, and subsidized graduate students in each department. The article concludes with a "plan for affirmative action to end discrimination against women." (AF)
