The Role of Government in the Attainment of Equal Opportunity for Women in Universities.
Walsh, Ethel Bent
Historically, institutions of higher learning have been regarded as the standard bearers of high moral, ethical, and democratic conduct. Now, however, it appears that colleges and universities are participating in a pattern of sex discrimination in both admissions and employment procedures. This discrimination has reached the point that federal intervention is a necessity. This paper cites general and specific cases of this type, and gives examples of active and pending legislation created for the attainment of equal opportunity for women in universities. (HS)
