Facts About Women in Higher Education.
Women's Equity Action League Educational and Legal Defense Fund, Washington, DC.
Information is presented on women as students, women graduates in the job market, women as faculty members and administrators, and the status of affirmative action. Women's enrollment in undergraduate education, traditional and nontraditional majors, enrollment in graduate and professional schools, degrees earned, dropout information, and the salary and status of women faculty members and administrators are covered. Vigorous enforcement of federal laws is advocated to provide equal opportunity in higher education and equal access to jobs upon graduation. Affirmative action plans, with goals and timetables, are needed, since the statistics show women are unemployed more often than men, underemployed, and more often underpaid. Being qualified is not yet enough to guarantee equality of opportunity. (SW)
