Affirmative Action?

Posted: October 19, 2010 by Jender in women get all the jobs, women have it easy

This happened after the turn of the century. When I was applying for jobs at the Eastern APA, I was told over and over again that department x, y, and z want to hire a woman in my area and that therefore my chances were very high in getting a job in those departments. Departments x, y, and z all ended up hiring only men. There were several women on the market that year who have since had higher professional recognition (publications in peer-reviewed journals etc.) than the men that were hired at department x, y, and z. The relevant women work in areas in which the departments were hoping to hire.
