[Preliminary Report of the Education Committee to the Illinois Commission on the Status of Women.]
Illinois State Commission on the Status of Women, Springfield.
Questionnaires sent to every institution of higher education in Illinois examined the status of women. Responses from 93 institutions indicated the position of women in Illinois institutions of higher education was deteriorating at an ever-increasing rate. The pattern of employment places most men in three professional ranks and over half in the top two tenured ranks alone, while less than one quarter of the women are in tenured ranks. The survey also showed a considered difference between the patterns of employment for single and for married women. Over one-third of the single women but less than one-sixth of the married women are in the tenured ranks. In most of the Illinois institutions the proportion of women either remained the same or dropped from 1970-71 to 1971-1972. Although women are held to the lower ranks and serve longer within each rank, they are paid less at every rank. Appendices include related material, the survey instrument, and a status report of civil service women at Northern Illinois University. (MJM)
