Poli Sci Reading Lists Favor Male Authors

HomeBy Colleen Flaherty. Just one in five readings assigned to political science graduate students is written by a woman, according to a new analysis of 840 syllabi and 65 reading lists published in The Journal of Politics and PS: Political Science & Politics. That's disproportionate to the rates at which women publish in the field and likely contributes to political science's gender citation gap, the authors say. More...

Egalité professionnelle. Des quotas pour faire progresser la féminisation des comités exécutifs ?

Actuellement, les femmes occupent, en France, 45 % des sièges d'administrateurs dans les entreprises du CAC 40. Mais seules 10 femmes dirigent des sociétés du SBF 120 et, selon Ethics & Boards, la mixité au sein des conseils exécutifs dépasse tout juste les 18 %. Cette sous-représentation féminine française n'est pas un cas isolé. Les comités exécutifs européens de l'indice Euro STOXX 50 comptent 17 % de femmes. Le taux de féminisation allemand est même de 14 % alors qu'il est de 20 % en Grande-Bretagne.

In terms of income, that data shows that, on average, women working full-time earned $1484.80 while men working full-time earned $1726.30. More...
