Take Action at DePaul Today!

If you’re concerned about discrimination against women in academia and the subordination of academic fields in which women predominate, please show your support for diversity in higher education on Thursday November 5th, from 1-3pm at the DePaul University student center to protest the discriminatory denial of tenure to female Professors.

As featured in Sunday’s Chicago Tribune (http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/chi-depaul-tenure_grossmannov01,0,648862.story), DePaul University disproportionately denied tenure to qualified female Professors last year. These tenure denials will reduce the number of female Professors on campus and diminish the strength of the Women’s and Gender Studies Department, among others.

We need your help to show DePaul—and all institutions of higher education—that students do not support and will not tolerate their administrations denying tenure in a discriminatory manner. Please come and support diversity and non-discrimination in academia:

WHERE? Corner of Sheffield and Belden, NE Corner of LP Student Center by the statue.
WHEN? Thursday, November 5th, 1-3pm.
QUESTIONS? Contact Chera Tribble, chera.patrice@gmail.com.
