“Women are scarce in scientific positions at universities in general. If one scrutinises the statistics, great numbers of women are found participating in undergraduate, PhD and postdoctoral programmes – and then they vanish. In Denmark, where the population prides itself on having a tradition for equal opportunity, only around 10% of the full professorships are held by women. If one considers centres of excellence and councils that decide overall research strategies and science funding, a magnifying glass is required to make the women visible.”
