Краткое описание

Considering participation in the Uttarakhand State Science and Technology Congress (USSTC) as an effective marker for participation of women researchers in the scientific arena of the state, for the the past seven years USSTC data was collected and analyzed. While the average number of women participants is less than men participants, the average number of young scientist awards received by women is greater than men. It is also found that a buffer period is required by women researchers to participate actively in science activities. Finally, the women participating in USSTC is compared with women participation in the National Science Congress, India, and inferences are derived.
