Part 2. Barriers Faced by Women Researchers: Segregation by Field of Work
Abstract:During the last three decades much has been done to improve the production and dissemination of statistics that reflect the actual situation of women and men in society.

Gender statistics is a relatively new field that cuts across all traditional statistical fields.
