The gist of this research study is that there are differences in measures of success when comparing men and women professors in Clinical Psychology. However, this does not mean the following:
-This is not saying that men are better than women. Certainly not generally or objectively and not even within the academic context.
-This is not saying that if women tried harder, they would be as successful. We still need to figure out the factors that contribute to this reliable difference. Right now, all we know is that there is a difference.
-This is not saying that on other measures of success that men will still be “better.” It could very well be the case that men do equally as well or even worse on other measures of success (e.g., community involvement in research).
