BERKELEY, Calif.--Two staff members of a University of California radio program recently field grievances against the university on the grounds that a script on discrimination against women in higher education was kept off the air.
Sylvia Paull, a news writer, and Charles Levy, a former producer of the program "Science Editor," also said they had been demoted when they protested the suppression of an interview with Elizabeth Scott, a professor of statistics at the Berkeley campus.
Scott said in the interview that female faculty members were paid less than men. The Chronicle of Higher Education reported recently.
Judith Woodward, the university's director of public affairs, said the script had been rejected because it represented Scott's personal views rather than her research.
