Women in Political Science. Studies and Reports of the APSA Committee on the Status of Women in the Profession, 1969-71.
American Political Science Association, Washington, DC.
In 1969 the American Political Science Association created a Committee on the Status of Women in the Profession to recommend ways of enhancing the professional position of women and of encouraging women to enter the field of political science. Several special studies undertaken by the Committee from 1969 through 1971 reveal the disadvantage of women in recruitment and professional activities. This document presents the interim, progress, and final reports of the Committee and includes essays on the status of women as students and professionals in political science, some comparative statistics on women in political science and other social sciences, and the prospects women have for professional advancement in political science. A selected bibliography on the status of women in political science is included. (HS)
