The government of Kerala has been taking proactive measures for the empowerment of women in various sections of society. Today, the advancement in Science & Technology happens so rapidly that makes the planning process a difficult task.
One of the very important problems faced by planners and policy makers in addressing gender issues in science and technology is the lack of adequate data on the actual representation of women at different levels of academics and profession.
In this context, KSCSTE, under its Women Scientists Division (WSD) initiated this online database on “Women in Science in Kerala”. The study is focused on scientific analysis of the representation of women in various sectors of academics, research and other science profession covering the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, Agriculture and Medicine(STEAM). Women who satisfy the following eligibility norms may register in this online database.
