  5. Little shift in gender disparity in higher ed

    Posted 16 September 2014 by Jeannie Rea (Women)

    There has been little shift for some time in the gender disparity in higher education careers and studies. In some areas gender equity has deteriorated. The proportion of women vice chancellors has fallen to 20%, just eight out of 39. It had climbed to one third a few years ago. And just the second woman to head up a ‘Group of 8’ University, starts at Monash this September.

    There has been little shift in the proportion of women academics still hovering around 44%, and women are still less than one third of the professorial class, but now at least more than one quarter.

    In moving her Life Membership at this year’s National Council, the Queensland Division has said, ‘More importantly, she brought with her a solid core of strong union values which would be a great source of guidance and strength for everyone in the Queensland Division who has had the privilege of working with her. As a marvellously unpretentious and down-to-earth (but always stylish!) person, Margaret may not be aware of the extent to which she has educated those around her. The Queensland Division in particular is in her debt, as she leaves the Division bigger and stronger than it has ever been. We look forward to a continuing association in her Life Member
