published 15 March 2006 updated 7 June 2018

Canadian EI affiliate CAUT has released a new report that shows under-representation of women among academic staff has been a persistent and troubling feature of universities and colleges in Canada.

The report also surveys the representation, appointment status and salaries of female academics in Australia, New Zealand, the United States, and the United Kingdom and finds that women remain seriously under-represented. Although women in all five countries have increased their presence among fulltime academic staff, they still remain significantly under-represented at the most senior academic ranks.
