The Status of Women in the Ontario Universities.
Payton, L. C.
Existing data on the status of women, both as students and as members of the full-time teaching staff, are examined. Actions taken, being taken, and being planned by the Ontario universities are also reviewed. It is shown that, in general, women do not participate as fully as students as do men, but there is no evidence at the system level to suggest that this situation results from discriminatory practices in the universities. Women also generally do not have equality of representation on the teaching staffs. The percentage of female teaching staff does not differ substantially from the percentage of women in doctoral programs, which leads to the conclusion that the situation will not change in the next few years. Women on the teaching staff have not been promoted into the higher academic ranks to the same extent as their male counterparts nor are their average salaries as high. Universities are re-examining their policies and procedures with regard to such concerns as recruiting, hiring, remuneration, promotion, and granting of tenure, pension and fringe benefits, and day care facilities. Tabular data are included. (LBH)
