Professional Concerns of Women in International Communication Association: Results of a Survey.
Butler, Matilda; And Others
This paper discusses and charts the results of a questionnaire sent in 1976 to the membership of the International Communication Association (ICA), covering the following professional concerns of women in communication: sexism in undergraduate/graduate textbooks; lack of courses dealing with women and communication; inadequate counseling of women to undertake graduate study; need for alternative student arrangements and work arrangements; discrimination against women in hiring, promotions, and salaries; inadequate child-care positions and parental-leave policies; and need for a women's perspective on research and for more research on women and communication. In addition to answering the questionnaire, respondents commented on two aspects of communication education and professions: the process and effects of discrimination and their goals and plans. The responses and comments indicate a need for ICA to adopt a bill of rights for women in communication and to disseminate it to academic, business, and media institutions. (JM)
