The Experiences of Women Academics at a South African University.
Petersen, N.; Gravett, S.
South African Journal of Higher Education, v14 n3 p169-76 2000
Used in-depth, semi-structured interviews to explore the experiences of women academics at a South African university. Found positive and negative experiences: positives included the lessening of overt discrimination and flexible work hours. Negatives included the "double workload" of traditional female duties combined with work life and ambivalent feelings about academia and the stress it causes. (EV)
