Affirmative Action and Academic Women: A Crisis in Credibility.
Larson, Barbara A.
"Affirmative action" studies have reached a point which has produced for academic women a "crisis" or "turning point" in their professional lives. The problem is clearly evident, but remedial action has been very slow in development. Data on salary, rank, tenure, status, and policy-making powers illustrate few changes from previous discriminatory trends. To enhance credibility for academic women, a persuasive campaign utilizing argument, evidence, and the application of the analysis of rhetorical sensitivity and social interaction described by Hart and Burk must be launched. Utilization of methods of persuasion, power attainment, performance, publicity, and persistence to meet the credibility crisis promise real gains for women in the future. (BLB)
