There is an issue with a lack of diversity and gender balance in science that is worsened by the devaluing of science disciplines which are reaching gender parity. Chemistry has a particular issue around the retention and progression of women. Whilst numbers of undergraduates studying chemistry are near 50% in the UK, the percentage of full professors who are women is <9%. To give context, in Physics, where <25% of all A level students are women, the percentage of full professors is still just under 9%.
