She Figures 2012. Gender in Research and Innovation. Statistics and Indicators

Luxembourg: Publications Office of the European Union, 2013 - ISBN 978-92-79-27642-2 - doi 10.2777/38520




Published every three years since 2003, She Figures  presents human resource statistics and indicators in the research and technological development (RTD) sector and on gender equality in science. The report is recommended reading for all policymakers, researchers and their employers, citizens with a vision of a participative, competitive and innovative Europe.
The latest update, She Figures 2012, shows that despite progress, gender inequalities in science tend to persist. For example, while 59 % of EU graduate students in 2010 were female, only 20 % of EU senior academicians were women. The publication also gives an overview of the scientific fields where women are better or less represented, and compares the research workforce in different economic sectors (e.g. higher education, government, and business sectors).
