Women in science and engineering: choices for success
Selby, Cecily Cannan
Quelle: Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences, Vol. 869 (1999) , XIX, 263 S.
Inhalt: "Participants and presenters from industry, universities, and government, corporate
and academic institutions report on the 'best practices' that foster women's science
careers. The papers assess whether, where, and how progress has taken place in the
25 years since the Academy held a conference entitled 'Women in Science: Determinants
of Success' that recommended ways of accelerating it, as well as goals for this century.
The shared perspective of the conference was that diversity must be abetted by substantive
changes in the attitudes, policies, and practices that inform how we educate the workforce
and how the science workplace is managed." (author's abstract)|

Negotiating the glass ceiling : careers of senior women in the academic world
David, Miriam; Woodward, Diana
Quelle: London: Falmer Press, 1998. VI, 216 S.
Inhalt: "Why is it that in many universities the number of women professors can literally be counted on the fingers of one hand, while the men number in the hundreds? Why are women academics so relatively disadvantaged and men so firmly in control?In an attempt to find answers to these questions, Negotiating the Glass Ceiling gathers together the unique personal reflections of sixteen eminent women working in higher education across the world. These reflections document some of the changing patterns of women's lives in higher education since the war, a time of massive social change within higher education itself, as well as in women's lives outside higher education. They also illustrate that the changes that have occurred have been hard won and not without consequencesfor the women involved. The book is divided into three sections. The first four accounts provide an international perspective, followed by six pioneering women's accounts of transforming academe. The last section contains varied accounts of women still developing their careers in the 'man-centred university' sector. All these stories bear witness to the wide tapestry of cultural, socio-economic andeducational change and how they have been experienced within the field of higher education by this unique blend of challenging women. As we move towards the millenium, what lessons can we draw about the future from them?" (authors' abstract)
Issues of gender and personal life for women in academic biology
Quelle: Journal of women and minorities in science and engineering, Vol. 4 (1998) No. 1, S. 69-89
Inhalt: "Explores issues of gender and personal life that arose during discussions with women scientists about factors contributing to their success in completing training and pursuing an academic career. Issues include gender discrimination, perception of reverse discrimination, efforts toward assisting junior women in science, and the possibility that women practice science in a different manner than do male colleagues."

Women scientists in the third world : the Indian experience
Titelübersetzung:Wissenschaftlerinnen in der Dritten Welt : Erfahrungen aus Indien
Quelle: New Delhi: Sage, 1998. 301 S.
Inhalt: This book is a unique `collective biography' of women scholars in the `hard' sciences at the University of Madras. As an ethnographic case study, it combines a comprehensive description of the lives and careers of individual women who struggle in a male-dominated workplace that marginalizes them with an analysis of the structures and organizational features that serve to maintain them in that peripheral position.
