The Relative Absence of Women in the Political Science Profession

This report comments on the findings of a research project that was conducted between February and March 2004, the preliminary results of which were presented at the 54th Annual Conference of the Political Studies Association. The research team was headed by Professor David Marsh, whilst the primary research was conducted by four first year PhD students from The University of Birmingham. We would like to thank both the Political Studies Association and the Sociology, Anthropology, Politics (C-SAP) Network for the funding that has made this research project possible and the Universities that participated in the project for contacting students on our behalf and arranging room bookings.
