historical barriers impeding the integration of women into academia
(Historical) Barriers Impeding the Integration of Women Into Academia
  • Profound division of labour
  • Historically, very high prestige and exclusiveness of academic profession, especially professorships
  • Very late entry of women into higher education and academic professions
  • Informal selection and co-opting mechanisms
  • A long and risky career ladder
  • Women are more likely to rely on non – regular financial support while working on their doctorates and habilitations
  • Women are more likely to occupy inferior sectors of the academic labour market
  • The traditional hierarchical system of university organisation

  • Stagnating interest of men in university studies and careers in a shrinking public sector
