Women Scientists in Industry and Government: How Much Progress in the 1970's? An Interim Report.
National Academy of Sciences - National Research Council, Washington, DC. Commission on Human Resources.
This 1980 report, the second prepared by the Committee on the Education and Employment of Women in Science and Engineering, focuses on the status of women scientists and engineers in private industry and in the federal government. It examines the extent to which their employment situation has improved since the affirmative action mandates occurred. This report consists primarily of analyses of the available data on doctoral women. Indications are that women still are less than 3% of all doctoral scientists and engineers in industry and women's salaries are lower than those of males by percentages ranging from 3% to almost 25%.
