Finkel, Susan Kolker; Olswang, Steven G.
Review of Higher Education, v19 n2 p123-39 Win 1996
Over 40% of women assistant professors in a recent survey (n=124) identified publishing, teaching, committees, and "time required by children" as serious impediments to achieving tenure, many more than reported sexual harassment and sexism as serious obstacles. Policy changes that will accommodate women professors' time commitments to children are discussed. (Author/MSE)
