On Campus with Women, v14 n4 Spr 1985 v15 n1 Sum 1985
Developments in education, employment, and the courts concerning the status of women are covered in two newsletter issues. Data are included on the specialties of women faculty and the type of institution employing them; salary and rank of women faculty and their tenure status; and employment patterns and salaries of women administrators. Additional topics include: nontraditional careers pursued by women; women's studies programs; sexual harassment of women students and staff; campus rape; the status of women in Europe; resources on disabled women and girls; a guide for integrating academic feminist scholarship and perspectives into traditional curricula; women in senior administrative posts; women and public policy; a directory of women's media; and a resource for locating women's periodicals. A 1984 article from "Ms./Campus Times" is also included: "What Lies Beyond 'The Woman as Victim' Construct--New Directions for Women's Studies." The growth of women's studies centers, programs, and publications is noted, along with mainstreaming of women's studies into the regular curriculum. It is suggested that although sexist societies have victimized women, some contemporary women tend to exaggerate women's oppression. Important issues for women in the 1980s are also identified. (SW)
