Gender Equity in Academia

Gender inequity – the fact that women academics, and especially those with children, are paid less, have less job security, face sexual harassment at a dramatically higher rate, and ultimately decide to leave the academy with much greater frequency than their male counterparts, is an issue of the gravest importance at UC and throughout academia. From taking a lead role in calling out the university’s failure to address the sexual harassment crisis at UC, to aggressively pursuing workplace gender discrimination grievances, to winning increased paid leave, UC Postdocs and Academic Researchers have made gender equity a core mission of our union’s efforts.

In September of 2016, UC Postdocs testified to the UC Regents on gender inequity at UC
