Admission and Attrition of Women in Graduate School.
Baranger, Elizabeth Urey
Reasons behind the fact that there are fewer women scientists than men scientists are explored in this paper. Data on the number of women Ph.D.'s in each field of science for the years 1966 through 1974 are presented and analyzed. Graduate school admissions policies and the greater attrition rate for women in graduate school compared to men are discussed. Finally, recommendations are made for ways of combating and preventing discrimination in graduate programs. (DT)
