The Story Behind “The Future of Women in Psychological Science”

In September 2020, APS published the first-ever gender parity review of psychological science: “The Future of Women in Psychological Science.”  The story behind this study, as told by some of the authors, is a compelling examination of personal experiences and observations. Through these discussions, a consensus emerges: Gender gaps for women in psychological science are closing, yet some remain, and more work is needed.
