Women in Higher Education.
Furniss, W. Todd, Ed.; Graham, Patricia Albjerg, Ed.
The analyses and suggestions of 38 leaders in education, feminism, foundations, law, and government are collected to set contexts for decisions facing colleges and universities concerning those students, faculty members, and administrators who are women. Among the issues are affirmative action, academic programs, accountability, equality, and equity. Most of the authors say it is the conscious and unconscious practices and prejudices of men that hinder women in their endeavors. Impediments to motivation, productivity, and careers, and the cost effectiveness of women professionals are discussed in detail by several experts. Authors include Helen S. Austin, Carolyn Shaw Bell, McGeorge Bundy, K. Patricia Cross, Robben W. Fleming, Patricia Roberts Harris, Roger W. Heyns, Juanita M. Kreps, Martha E. Peterson, Mina Rees, Bernice Sandler, Sheila Tobias, Anne T. Truax, and David B. Truman. (Author/PG)
