Abstract

On 1 May, about 120,000 researchers will be added to the European community of scientists. But how many of them will be women? And do they fare better in their careers than their sisters in the West? At first sight, concludes a recent European report on gender issues in the accession countries, women scientists are better off working in Central and Eastern Europe, in terms of gender equality across all scientific disciplines. But scratch the surface and the picture blemishes, the report warns.
