Improving the Status of Women in the Academy
Gee, Michele V.; Norton, Sue Margaret
Thought & Action, p163-170 Fall 2009
While women have always faced gender inequities in the general workplace, the academic world has traditionally prided itself on equality and transparency. Sadly, despite substantial gains in the number of doctorates awarded to women and in their employment in academic institutions, there is still much room for improvement in the academy. The purpose of this paper is to articulate some of the challenges impeding women's progress in higher education, and to identify some best practices for recruiting and retaining women faculty, thus helping maximize their success and career satisfaction. (Contains 2 tables and 12 endnotes.)
