Women continue to be disadvantaged on important metrics that count for advancement in political science and other academic disciplines. This symposium has mostly focused on citations and teaching evaluations but we could have highlighted other dimensions too, for example that women are asked to do more administrative service and are less likely to say no.
We have seen insightful answers to the question why these disadvantages persist. Some of these answers were inspired by social science research- others were more personal reflections. We have also had interesting suggestions for improvement, ranging from the general to very practical proposals for increased anonymity and on-line tools for bibliography improvement.
Here is a PDF file that has all contributions in one place. We will surely have future entries on this topic, which will all be collected under the tag Gender Gap. Below are hyperlinks to all contributions. I hope that you have found the symposium engaging.
