This was the topic of an
presented by CWS chair Beverley Carlson during the
IAOS conference on Statistics, Development and Human Rights which took
place in Montreux, Switzerland, in September 2000. The paper was part
of a session on Gender Statistics and Indicators of Women's
Empowerment. In it, Ms. Carlson analyzed the participation of women in the ISI and its Sections, reviewed women's standing in the academic profession - particularly in the sciences - and discussed the limitations of statistics on women.
Women in the Statistics Profession: A Status Report , also prepared by Ms. Carlson, appears in the International Statistical Review (2000), 68,3,339-352, a publication of the ISI.
