Women in the Professoriate

Dale Kirby, a Professor of Post-Secondary Education Studies at Memorial, reports on the percentages of women faculty in Canadian universities on his post-secondary education blog, and as reported recently by the Toronto Star.

According to the first entry, women comprise only 18% of full professors.
The second entry gives a lot more information, including changes since 1991, salary comparisons (median salary for female full professors: $6,000 lower than males), and more info on this issue in general.

Not surprisingly: the numbers are up since 1991, but there's still a lot of disparity.
