Male and Female Graduate Students. The Question of Equal Opportunity.
Solmon, Lewis C.
A study of differential opportunities for men and women graduate students was undertaken during a two-year period. The analyses of the results provide some evidence that differential treatment exists, but also some data indicating that things have improved compared with conditions in earlier eras. Earlier discussions of sex discrimination are reviewed, and sex differences are documented and explained in the areas of admissions, time spent in graduate study, geographic and interinstitutional mobility, and financial aid practices.
