Abstract/Citation: Seeks to raise the number of women employees in the areas of science, research and art to 40 percent, especially as professors in scientific or artistic institutions of higher learning. Declares that women are to be preferred over equally-qualified candidiates for positions in which women are underrepresented, and bans the request for gender-specific information in the hiring process. Also declares, inter alia, that women-studies topics are to be academically recognized, and that efforts should be made to ensure child-care facilities for women employees. An appendix provides an analysis of gender distribution in the fields of science, research and art.
