Women's Caucus of the College Art Association Survey of the Status of Women in 164 Art Departments in Accredited Institutions of Higher Education.
White, Barbara Ehrlich; White, Leon S.
This document presents statistical data on the status of women in full-time teaching positions in 164 college and university art departments. This status can best be summarized by the relationship, "the higher, the fewer." The percentage of women at various faculty ranks decreases steadily from instructor to full professor. Necessarily, the opposite is true for men. The data do not provide an answer to why "the higher, the fewer" relationship holds so pervasively. However, they do indicate that in those departments that have Ph.D.'s on their faculties, the percentage of women with Ph.D.'s exceeds the percentage of men by almost 25%. Hence, although women are concentrated at the lower ranks, they may be more highly trained on the average than their male colleagues. (Author/HS)
