Between 1970 and 2005, 16 of the most influential medical journals
had 118 editors-in-chief. Only eight of them were women. The same
journals had 3,237 editorial board members, only 371 (16%) of whom were
women, though better than 1.4% in 1970. Eleven of the 16 journals,
including the BMJ, had no women editors during the 35-year study period.
