I though that subscribers to this newsgroup might be interested in an
article which Science's Next Wave published this week. 

U.K. Women: Still Second Best in Science? In this article Natasha Loder, a
U.K.-based correspondent, reviews several of the issues faced by U.K. 
women in science which have contributed to the continuing dearth of senior
female scientists in the U.K. She also discusses the findings from a
recent report (by Judith Glover and Jane Fielding) on the subject. "The
findings paint a depressing picture because, in some ways, the situation
for women with science degrees in the early '90s is either worse, or no
better, than it was in the late '70s." 

The article can be found at: 

Science's Next Wave is a FREE electronic magazine for young scientists
published by AAAS and Science magazine. This article is one of an
ocassional series looking at the issues facing women in SET. 

Thank you,
