Women Faculty in the University of Pennsylvania.
Pennsylvania Univ., Philadelphia.
The purpose of this report was to explore the status of faculty women and make recommendations to remedy any inequities found. The general picture which emerges is similar to that found at other universities. There are very few women on the faculty; women are concentrated in the lowest ranks; many departments have no women faculty members; there has been little change in departmental staffing patterns in the last 5 years; there are inhibitions toward employing husband and wife teams; women faculty members earn less than men in the same rank; and women are less visible in other aspects of the academic community, such as invited speakers, artists in residence, honorary degrees awarded, committee membership and University Senate membership. These aspects are contrasted to a role for women faculty based on realistic perceptions of her talents and fair treatment. Supporting statistical data appear in separate appendices. (LR)
