Married Male Professors Get Tenure Sooner than Married Ladies

The Atlantic posted an article entitled Being Married Helps Professors Get Ahead, But Only if They’re Male. A recent study found that married men advanced from associate to full professor of history faster than their unmarried counterparts (5.9 and 6.4 years, respectively) while the opposite is true for women. Married lady historians advanced slower than their unmarried counterparts, (7.8 and 6.7 years, respectively). While the professional set-backs experienced by working mothers is well-documented, less well known are the specific compromises that lady academics make to accommodate husbands’ careers. Also of note is how an effort to include “diversity” on University committees or other service positions burden lady academics, take away from their own research, and slow down academic progress.Image
