Association of American Colleges, Washington, DC. Project on the Status and Education of Women.
News items on the status and education of women are presented. Among the items pertaining to employment are the following: a survey of Harvard University graduates revealed that women had lower salaries and fewer professional responsibilities than the male graduates; and a Department of Labor report showed women college graduates are more likely to hold clerical positions, and less likely to have managerial status than their male colleagues. Publications pertaining to women's employment are briefly reviewed. Among the sexual harassment cases that are noted are the following: a case in which a professor sued five women who charged him with sexual harassment; and a ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals at Washington, D.C., that permits a woman to sue her employer to stop sexual harassment on the job without having to prove that she resisted and lost her job as a result. Among the other types of court cases are: the quality-of-pension issues; the question of whether Title IX covers employment practices; pregnancy benefits; and tenure. Federal support for women's education, a new approach to affirmative action proposed by the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights, sex discrimination in sports cases, information on women in nontraditional careers, and women's studies programs are also covered. Developments in the education and status of women in other countries, concerns pertaining to minority group women, grants and scholarships for women and minorities, and bibliographies and publications are examined. An editorial on educational equity as affected by consolidation and budget cuts is also presented. (SW)
