RESUMO

This article examines how women's representation on the faculty of mathematical science departments has changed across ranks and institutional settings in the 1990s. Data from the annual surveys conducted by the American Mathematical Society indicated that, within each institutional group, the proportion of women faculty has been increasing at an average rate of approximately 0.5% per year since 1990. However, for the institutions in Group 1 (the most selective doctorate mathematics programs), a substantial rise in the percentage of nontenure-track women faculty contributed to this increase, whereas the proportion of tenure-track and tenured women has not grown. Moreover, women's representation continues to be inversely correlated with the prestige of the institutional groups. Women had the greatest representation in the least prestigious institutional settings, and the lowest representation in the most prestigious mathematics departments.
