Two decades until gender equality reached in Scottish universities, figures reveal
Slow progress towards parity for women professors
FIGURES have revealed that a glass ceiling is still present for women in Scottish universities, despite some progress.
While women make up 45 per cent of the academic workforce, new data collated by The Herald show just 21.8 per cent of professors at Scottish universities are women.
This amounts to a rise of only three percentage points from 2010/11 when 18.3 per cent of professors were women.
