Widening the Circle: Another Look at Women Graduate Students

Today, graduate women are still lagging behind their male counterparts. In this paper we will try to explain, both historically and empirically, the situation of women doctoral students and what problems keep them from parity with male students. We will present practical suggestions for graduate deans on how to improve the present situation and how to truly welcome women into the circle of doctoral students.
