Women Without Tenure, Part 1
American Association for the Advancement of Science
National data show that women currently represent 41% (36% of fulltime and 45% of part-time) of the nearly 1 million faculty in the U.S., double the number from 1972. However, women represent only 25% of the fulltime faculty at research universities, a percentage that has barely budged from the 1972 figure of 18%. In 4-year colleges and universities, women SET (science, engineering, and technology) faculty hold fewer high-ranking posts than men, are less likely to be full professors, and are more likely to be assistant professors.
