These Explorations, by eight authors from Canada, China, the US, and the
UK, examine the current status of women in economics (with an eye
mainly toward their status in the academic branch of the profession).
The four sections of the work analyze results of surveys that show the
distribution of academic positions among women economists in
universities in Canada, the UK, the US, and China. The work also
provides a short history of the development of committees and groups
interested in furthering the status of women in the economics profession
and suggests ways to improve the efforts of such groups and the status
of women economists.
