Latvia, Lithuania have almost highest shares of women in science

Bishkek (AKIpress) - successful-woman In spite the fact the share of women in higher education continues to increase, only 30% of scientists are women, The Baltic Course reported referring to the latest data from the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).

Latvian National Commission for UNESCO consultant Liene Krivena said that only one in five countries has achieved gender equality in science – the share of women in science between 45% and 55%, and Latvia is among these countries.

Thus, the share of women in science in Latvia is 51%, in Lithuania – 51%, in Estonia – 43%.

UNESCO researchers point out that many women do not continue their careers after attaining education. Instead, they choose to take care of their families.
