Women Faculty in Higher Education: A Case Study on Gender Bias
Bingham, Teri; Nix, Susan J.
Forum on Public Policy Online, v2010 n2 2010
This study examines the perceptions of female faculty members in higher education to ascertain their views regarding gender bias in the workplace. A questionnaire was used to collect data from the participants regarding their beliefs of the value and productivity of their work, possible disparity in treatment based on gender, constraints put on women because of care-giving responsibilities, and potential limitations on their career. From the data emerged four categories that impact the lives of women. These issues are discussed and recommendations for policy changes are suggested.
