Faculty women and service commitments

Some links related to how service commitments affect the advancement of women faculty:

"The Ivory Ceiling of Service Work"

“[W]omen associate professors taught an hour more each week than men, mentored an additional two hours a week, and spent nearly five hours more a week on service. This translates to women spending roughly 220 more hours on teaching, mentoring, and service over two semesters than men at that rank.

"Being Married Helps Professors to Get Ahead, But Only If They’re Male"

“Professors of both sexes do care a great deal about furthering an institutions goals and enriching the community, but men assert greater control over exactly how that happens.”
