A Case for Equity: Women in English Departments.
McAllester, Susan, Ed.
The dilemma of American women in 1971 as encountered by college teachers and college students is examined in this work. The dilemma is this: in spite of the opening of the universities to women for study and employment and in spite of other social changes, women must still endure a status secondary to that of men. They are not often appointed to professorial rank, and they find it hard to establish the spaciousness of outlook which encompasses visions and results in extended writing. Most of the 14 articles in this collection were written in the fall of 1970 at the request of the Modern Language Association Commission on Women. (Author/CK)
