In some academic disciplines, like physics, women still represent a tiny minority of students and faculty members. Other fields, such as history, have come closer to reaching gender balance, but women remain a minority at the rank of full professor. Research in many fields now includes studies that focus on gender and sexuality.
Do women make a difference in the academic world? Does participation by women change the way people behave in academic departments? Do male colleagues treat women as equals? What can young women—or young men—expect when they pursue advanced degrees?
This panel kicks off a series of upcoming events in celebration of Women’s History Month, March 2010.
The event is free and open to all. Refreshments will be served.
