Female professors continue to be marginalised


Recent figures have revealed just 24 per cent of University of York professors are female, up only one per cent from 2010.

Despite pledging commitment to the cause two years ago, the one per cent increase in female professors is a source of concern for certain members of female staff.

Celia Kitzinger, a Professor of Conversion Analysis, Gender and Sexuality in the Department of Sociology at the University, has called the figures, “depressingly low despite the upward trend.” Kitzinger has recently been appointed as a member of the University Promotions Committee.
