Women in Academic Life – their stories then and now
We need YOUR HELP please, with a BFWG Research Project to undertake research into the lives of women in academic employment and their experiences. Much discussion occurs and articles are written over the lack of equity in earnings between women and men, the burdens and expectations placed on women with families, whose ability to move jobs is limited by their partner’s position and by sexism in the workplace.
We invite Independents to be part of this project.
A volunteer from Southern Region Independents is requested to be part of this exciting project.
