Report on the Status of Women at Duquesne University.
Duquesne Univ., Pittsburgh, PA.
The status of women at Duquesne University was examined with the use of questionnaires, testimony volunteered by individuals, interviews with administrative officers, affective attitudes expressed informally, and data obtained from the heads of various departments. Results indicated: (1) Women, whether faculty or staff, uniformly receive less pay than their male counterparts. (2) Women are underrepresented in administrative and policy-making positions in proportion to their numbers among the faculty and staff. (3) A disproportionate minority of women hold the rank of associate professor of full professor. (4) Women are underrepresented in the faculty in relation to number of women in the student body. (5) Students disclosed the existence of an anti-feminine bias in the classroom. (6) An anti-feminine bias exists with regard to women faculty and staff. (7) Representation of women on decision-making committees is either non-existent or merely token with no relation to the proportion of women found in the University at all levels. (8) Women are inequitably represented on the Board of Trustees. (9) Women constitute an insignificant number of all recipients of honorary degrees. (10) Support staff for women in administrative and/or supervisory positions is not as generous as that of men holding comparable positions. (Author/MJM)
