Zhao, Yezhu
Frontiers of Education in China, v2 n3 p415-429 Jul 2007
This paper examines the changing status of women faculty through an analysis of statistics on China's universities from 1994 to 2004. This paper first presents the trend of a drastic increase in women faculty members in recent years. Further details on the academic ranks of women faculty, their age and highest degrees obtained are also presented. A comparison of female representation in faculty ranks is made between China and a few selected countries. Lastly, this paper attempts to account for the low percentage of female professors in higher education. Recommendations for the professional development for women faculty are made in the end.
