  1. I’ve not read it yet, either. However. I’m hopeful that the explanation is not so much a leaky pipeline but (1) demographics [the 60% figure representing current percentage rather than percentage that obtained when the current professoriat received their degrees] and (2) higher salaries outside academe, wooing current female (and male) degree-holders out of the ivory towers.

    I suppose this might still mean that academe pursues fewer female candidates, but I would feel less wretched about that if qualified women are being picked up by industry, government, and other well-paying non-university sectors.
