The Status of Women at Cornell.
Francis, Barbara
The purpose of this report is to point out some of the discriminatory policies and attitudes which "tend to make the Cornell environment a difficult place for young women to achieve the personal and intellectual maturity necessary for lifelong active participation in today's society." The report opens with an excerpt from a paper by a Junior describing her campus experiences, which include strong criticisms of student, faculty, and institutional attitudes toward women. The report then details discriminatory practices in admissions policies, financial aid and housing. It suggests the provision of day-care centers, the need for sex education and a change in university clinic policy, a change in counseling practices, and the need for exposure to more female faculty members and women in positions of responsibility in administration to help change conventional stereotypes and expectations.
