Gender Bias in Academe: An Annotated Bibliography of Important Recent Studies
As part of the Futures Initiative goal of advancing equity in higher education, Futures Initiative Directory Cathy N. Davidson and Research Fellow Danica Savonick have compiled an annotated bibliography
of important studies documenting gender bias in higher education. In addition to summarizing the findings of major studies in the social sciences, the bibliography includes talking points, recommendations for administrators, and a call for additional citations. In order to materialize a more just and equitable future, even beyond academe, we must attend to the ways in which long histories of prejudice against women and people of color haunt the present, oftentimes through the unconscious influence of bias in hiring and evaluation. Follow up parts of this research project will deal with economics, poverty, and educational attainment in communities near CUNY campuses and will discuss some of the impacts of living near CUNY campuses on community life.
