The Academic Women. Case Study: IWU.
Women in all phases of professional life have been discriminated against in the past and this tradition is being carried over to the present. This paper reviews the problems of academic women in the society at large and particularly at Illinois Wesleyan University. Items included in the study are tenure and status of the women at IWU; the percentage of women on committees at IWU; and salary differences in men and women at IWU. Findings show that: (1) 42% of the women faculty members are tenured as compared with 55% of the men; (2) in a 5-year period from the academic years 1966 through 1970, only 2 committees were chaired by women and the percentage of women on committees ranged from 17% to 30%; and (3) the mean salary for all women faculty is $9,911 as compared with the mean salary for men, which is $12,094.
