Seeking Equity for Women in Journalism and Mass Communication Education: A 30-Year Update

Epilogue
“We Ain't There Yet…”
Carol E. Oukrop

When Ramona Rush and I decided that there should be a “30 years later” follow-up of our 1972 study on the status of women in journalism education, my hopes regarding progress were high. I'm far less optimistic now.

A reader of this book is simply smacked alongside the head by the consistency with which R3—the Ratio of Recurrent and Reinforced Residuum—appears to fit in chapter after chapter. The R3 hypothesis predicts that women get about 1/3:2/3, or, worse yet, 1/4:3/4 of the available resources. This seems to hold throughout the book, and the fundamental issues remain basically the same.

The reader also sees clear evidence that the provisions of the standard bearer resolution initiated by Rush and passed by the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication (AEJMC) in Washington, DC, in 1989 have not been met. In that resolution, AEJMC members and affiliates were encouraged to have at least 50% of their faculties and administrations comprised of women and minorities by the year 2000. The year 2000 has come and gone, and we found only 21% of the schools in our study meeting the resolution criteria.

The reader must also have noted that attempts to bring about faculty and student diversity through the accreditation process have been less successful than we had hoped. As pointed out in chapter 4, over the past 18 years not a single program has been denied accreditation for noncompliance with the standard requiring evidence of recruiting and retaining women and minorities, both faculty and students, unless at least one other standard is also out of compliance.
