Females as bosses

June 19, 1998

AS A mere administrator I have perhaps been unable to grasp the intellectual depth of Celia Kitzinger's article (THES, June 12).

It does seem, however, that the strains highlighted in the female-to-female supervisory relationship owe less to the femininity issue and rather more to the intimate nature of the research mentioned. And that has explosive potential for any supervisor regardless of sexual inclination. The assumption, of course, is that not only lesbians with a preference for female supervisors are involved in research on female body parts.
