About the project

 

The last five decades brought a qualitative change in the topic of leveling the basic rights of women and men. However, research shows that many women in science still face the problem of so-called glass ceiling (invisible obstacles standing in the way of women's promotion), some of them is affected by the so-called Matilde's effect (ignoring or omitting the contribution of women to science and crediting the male researchers with the female researchers achievements).

The role of women in the Polish political science has been increasing steadily. According to UNESCO, the share ratio is 48%. The number of women with the postdoctoral degree and associate professor is also growing. Despite the many adversities, thanks to the persistence and determination of Polish female researchers, the face of Polish political sciences is increasingly female.

 

Researches are conducted within the framework of the Women in Polish Political Science project. From diagnosis to cooperation, they are the initial phase aimed at diagnosing the situation of Polish female political scientists. The research will be exploratory. Their results will be a source of inspiration for activities aimed at increasing active participation and representation of women in political sciences.

 

The project was inspired by the interests and experiences of female researchers and reading publications concerning  the position of political science in Poland and around the world, including the role of women in science and, in particular, in political sciences.
