1977-78 Report to the President by the Commission on the Status of Women.
Delaware Univ., Newark.
Issues of concern to women that were identified by various campus groups are presented and discussed in this volume. Included are reports that were made by female graduate students, undergraduate students, a professional constituency committee, a faculty committee, and a staff constituency committee. Specific topic areas addressed include the hiring and promotion of female faculty, research on women, women's studies, sexism, job placement, housing, campus security, affirmative action, equal job opportunities for female faculty, and salary equalization. Emphasis is placed throughout on a statistical presentation of the status of women. Recommendations for study or action in each of the areas discussed are made. Appendices provide supportive data, analyses of data, and the findings of a 1976-77 survey conducted by the American Association of University Women to determine what progress has been made by women since the advent of affirmative action and equal opportunity laws.
