The Committee on the Status of Women in Linguistics (COSWL) has been involved in a concerted effort over the course of the last year to collect, summarize, and analyze data relevant to the distribution of gender in the field of Linguistics. These data include gender representation within Linguistic departments and programs, job searches and hires, conferences, and publications such as major peer-reviewed journals and handbooks in the field. Look for more information about COSWL's data collection efforts to follow within the next few months! For more information, please contact the Chair of COSWL, Dr. Kristen Syrett.
