Report on the Status of Women Faculty at Boston State College.
Ad Hoc Committee on the Status of Women, Boston State Coll., MA.
Since 1948 when the first two male students were admitted to the previously all female Boston State College, the status, number and percentage of women at the college has declined considerably both in student and faculty ratios. Hiring and promotion practices at BSC have been such that a clear pattern of discriminatory practices against women can now be established, a condition that is clearly in discord with federal legislation. This study compares the salary and rank status of women faculty at BSC to that of men. The comparison is made on the basis of such factors as academic qualifications, tenure status, length of service at BSC, and rank. It was found that in almost all cases the findings are unfavorable to women. This has led to the inescapable conclusion that, in all these analyses, the significant factor explaining the discrepancies is sex. (HS)
