Report of the Chancellor's Advisory Committee on the Status of Women at UCLA.
Stark, Nola; And Others
It is the opinion of the Chancellor's Advisory Committee on the Status of Women at UCLA that women at all levels in the university are handicapped. Student women at UCLA are discouraged from majoring in academic areas and from entering graduate school because of the outdated but popular myth that education is wasted on women. Women on the nonacademic staff at the university are also affected by prejudice in various forms. The skills women are urged to acquire, such as typing and shorthand, are remunerated at a rate far lower than that paid for the skills in which men are trained. Indeed, even unskilled men are generally paid more than secretaries. Furthermore, the dearth of on-the-job training programs at UCLA severely limits mobility, trapping many competent women in positions that society has programmed them to seek and accept but which are unworthy of their abilities. Women who persist and earn graduate degrees are rarely accepted into teaching positions at UCLA and most often content themselves with positions in less prestigious universities and colleges. (HS)
