Hi,
Lab Mom wrote up an interesting article on how there are many women in science but not at the upper levels and how this is not the case in other professions. Read it here and the discussion below the article.
http://www.labspaces.net/blog/258/Is_our_society_just_better_suited_for_women__Maybe_NOT_in_Science_

My questions to women in science is:
What's your mindset like pre and post baby? Does having a baby change your perspective on your career?

I am genetically under-qualified to answer this but MicrobiologistXX (http://microbiologistxx.blogspot.com/) just had a baby, Dr. Isis has a 3yr old, (http://scienceblogs.com/isisthescientist/) and Alyssa is expecting soon (http://mrscomethunter.blogspot.com/).

There's three potential candidates to see you can get them to post or guest blog?

Hey! Now that I'm here maybe I should tackle this, too. I have a 3-year old AND a new tt job. Also, my Dept has a "women in science" problem (I'm about the only exception)

Hi Gerty,
Do you mean you are the only woman PI in your department? Or the only one with a child?

OK, so I exaggerated a little. Of the ~25 faculty with primary appointments in my Dept., I am one of 5 women. The other 4 are all full professors, two have children that are grown (their husbands are both also faculty in the dept) and two have no children. I still think this qualifies as a problem, though.

That sounds average. When I was in grad school- which was in the early 90's, there were 3 women faculty. Two more was hired about a year later and then another was hired but non-TT as her husband was recruited and they gave her that position.
Two did not have kids and the other four did.
Two had husbands as faculty (and they often co-published together).

One of these women (one without kids) happened to be the faculty person with the worst reputation for being cruel. She had only male grad students because women were treated so harshly they didn't choose her lab.

The entire faculty was probably around 25 people.
All of the women faculty worked a lot and weekends too. When I was in on weekends, they would be there too.

I think they really sacrificed a lot of time with their kids in those years to be in the lab.

I'm struggling with this now. My husband and I are talking about a baby, but I'm terrified about what happens to my project while I'm out! I can see why a lot of women in science choose not to take time off for a baby, because it potentially puts you at a disadvantage as your field moves on without you. I'd love to hear everyone's perspectives on this.
