The AAUP Pays Tribute to Two Feminist Scholars

By 1970, most faculty members, men and women alike, had begun to recognize that improvements in the status of women were needed. The AAUP responded by reconstituting Committee W on the Status of Women in the Academic Profession—a committee that was founded in 1918 but had been inactive for decades. This year, the AAUP pays tribute to two women, Alice Rossi (1922–2009) and Maita Levine (1930–2008), who played key roles in the committee’s work and in advancing the interests of women in the academy.
