Sexism At Harvard Increases Under Summers
04 Jan 2005
Since former Clinton Administration Treasury Secretary Larry Summers moved from D.C. into the Harvard University presidential office, institutional sexism at Harvard University has apparently increased.
Although the Militaristic U.S. Establishment's Democratic Party Leaders often pose as champions of women's liberation, since former Clinton Administration Treasury Secretary Larry Summers walked through the revolving door to become Harvard University's President, discrimination against women at Harvard University has apparently increased. As a recent Harvard Crimson student newspaper editorial observed:
"In the crucial and delicate arena of tenure, Harvard is lagging behind—and the extent of the problem is embarrassing.
Last year, a pitiful 12.5 percent of new tenured Faculty were women, a number which has fallen steadily every year since University President Lawrence H. Summers took office in 2001." (Harvard Crimson 12/21/2004)
