Ward, LaWanda
New Directions for Higher Education, n143 p63-72 Fall 2008
Studies have documented the increased number of women faculty in the academy; however in areas that are historically male dominated--law, medicine, and engineering--the numbers remain dismal. This article describes the real situation of female professors in the academic disciplines of law, medicine, and engineering. This article also provides suggestions for the improvement of the situation of women in nontraditional fields.
