Boosting Women’s Presence

The Polish Academy of Sciences has for long devoted much attention to the problem of the insuffi-cient level of representation of women among its bodies and members. There are more and more female researchers nowadays, to be sure, especially in biological fields, medicine, humanities, and social sciences, but also increasingly in the technical and hard sciences as well. But there are still not many women among the top echelons of science. At the General Assembly meeting in Decem-ber, at which new members were elected, the members of the Academy decided time had come to put theory into practice. After the vote, the Academy had nine more female members. While their numbers are still not large (the share of female members increasing from just under 5% to more than 7%), the move is a good step towards a more deserving appreciation of women’s achievements and strength in science. One might say we have begun a long process of pushing through the “glass ceiling,” of opening up the Academy to female scientists and to world standards.
Jerzy Duszyński, President of the Polish Academy of Sciences
