Frehill further noted that the workshop has brought together social scientists who study the social structures of gender, science, and technology; advocates of women’s participation in the disciplines under consideration who trained practitioners in those specific disciplines; and those who are involved in programs and policy work related to women’s participation in the sciences. The presented data provided a snapshot of the current status of women in the selected disciplines, as well as illustrate the methodologies by which data need to be examined to permit cross-national comparisons of women’s participation in science.

The workshop presentations provided an opportunity for dialogue about the issues that the authors have been pursuing in their work to date. Limited to 10 minutes, the presentations highlighted only some of the information contained in the presenters’ papers included in the summary (see Appendix E).
