    Sexism and Self-Healing in the University

    Linda L. Nielsen
    While legislation exists which is intended to prevent discrimination on the basis of sex, the nature and extent of its impact remains indeterminate.

The author analyzes the impact of discrimination on her personal and professional life, comparing her perspective on the nature and efforts of prejudice with those of other researchers and female academicians.
