The Status of Faculty Women: A Method for Documentation and Correction of Salary and Rank Inequities Due to Sex.
Kimmel, Ellen B.
It is an increasingly well-documented fact that women in the American universities suffer from sex discrimination. Recent federal legislation makes it legally as well as morally imperative that employment policies in higher education afford equal opportunity to women. Under the law, institutions under federal contracts must be able to demonstrate positively that no discrimination exists in any aspect of employment and that affirmative action is being taken to remedy the effects of past discrimination. This places the burden of proof on the administration of a college to provide evidence of its innocence, rather than the employee or the Federal government to prove the administration's guilt. This document presents a description of a method utilized at the University of South Florida to find specific corrective measures to eliminate existing and to prevent future sex discrimination. It was first used for documentation purposes and subsequently for corrective ones. (Author/HS)
