Abstract:This phenomenological research focuses upon the retrospective experiences of 16 tenured Jewish Israeli women scholars and the influences that have affected their professional academic advancements. The three research questions explored internal and external influences related to the pursuit and attainment of tenure by these academic women. Common themes from the strategies that either facilitated or impeded their career advancements were also identified. The sample comprised secular (8) and religiously observant (8) tenured Jewish Israeli women who also were mothers. All participants were senior lecturers, associate professors or full professors employed at two universities, one of which is secular and the other religious. Participants showed a heightened sense of awareness with respect to women's issues and gender-bias within academe. They represent a critical mass of feminist awareness within their respective institutions. Data from a demographic questionnaire, a semi-structured interview and a researcher's diary were analyzed to identify emergent trends and themes. Major internal influences identified as enabling women's academic career advancements included: (1) positive parental role modeling and the fostering of supportive values during childhood and adolescence; (2) marriage to a husband who is also in academe; (3) a strong sense of self-confidence about one's professional capabilities. Impeding internal influences included a lack of financial support for childcare and a family environment that subordinates a woman's professional ambitions to those of her spouse. Emergent external influences that affected academic women's career advancement, either positively or negatively, included: (1) attitudes toward gender-equity in the Israeli higher education milieu; (2) prioritization of academic duties and activities and mentoring. Databases were integrated and analyzed, and a conceptual framework based upon a four-quadrant matrix was developed. This framework integrates the impact of the personal, public and political dimensions of a woman scholar's life with her professional domain. The framework contributes to a more comprehensive portrayal of women scholars, regardless of their religion or system of higher education. Such articulated life histories of successful Jewish academic women prompt a heightened self-consciousness in other scholars, building a critical mass for social change that results in more inclusive and gender sensitive policies.
