Gender and Promotion in the Economics Profession.
McDowell, John M.; Singell, Larry D., Jr.; Ziliak, James P.
Industrial and Labor Relations Review, v54 n2 p224-44 Jan 2001
A study of American Economic Association members (633 women, 1,245 men) indicated that in the 1960s-early 1980s, female economists had lower professional attainment and career advancement. Women's promotion prospects significantly improved during the 1980s in all ranks and for Ph.D.-granting and non-Ph.D. granting institutions. By the end of the decade, no unexplained gender-specific differences appeared. (SK)
