Academic Women, Sex Discrimination, and the Law: An Action Handbook.
Tinsley, Adrian; Ruben, Elaine
This pamphlet gives an overview of the legal resources currently available to academic women, both for individuals who have experienced discrimination and for groups organizing to deal with patterns of discrimination in educational institutions. The law is discussed in relation to discrimination in employment and admissions. Emphasis is placed on the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Equal Pay Act of 1963, Constitutional Law, State Law, the Higher Education Act of 1972, the Public Health Service Act, and the Equal Rights Ammendment. Grievance procedures and the process of finding a lawyer are discussed regarding implementation of the law. The Executive Order, issued by President Johnson in 1965, and nepotism rules and practices are highlighted. A bibliography is included. (MJM)
