Plus Ça Change, Plus C’est la Même Chose
This chapter draws on the scholarship in women's studies to provide some of the context in understanding the experiences of women in science. During the past 30 years, women's studies and feminist perspectives have transformed theoretical approaches to knowledge and mandated inclusion of women and a focus on research subjects of interest to women. This led to more inclusive pedagogy in the classroom and curricular content and increases in hiring, promotion, and tenure of women faculty in the humanities and social sciences. Indeed, indicator data on salaries, space, start-up packages, time to tenure, time to promotion, and numbers of endowed chairs for women scientists and engineers compared to their male counterparts form a crucial portion of all projects to provide quantitative data critical for judging progress for women in academia. To that end, the chapter features interviews of current women scientists and engineers, including the author's own experiences in her career.
