Cites women in academic science as an interesting case study to examine the effects of gender on work and career attainment. Suggests that inequality should be less pronounced in this area than other occupations as physical strengths, technical skills or leadership are less necessary in this sphere. Presents the findings of a cross‐national survey comparing Israel with other countries which shows that life in academia in every nation is no less sexist than the world outside. Highlights a perception held by some that women do not possess the requisite characteristics and abilities to do creative and theoretical research.
