DescriptionOver the past few years, women have become increasingly visible at annual meetings of the American Fisheries Society. In 1987, women were first authors of only 5.9% of papers presented at the annual meeting, even though membership was approximately 8.7% female. By 1991, however, women were first authors for 11.9% of the papers presented and the membership was 11.8% female. Two trends appear to account for the change: women volunteered to speak in contributed paper sessions in higher proportions in 1991, and more women organized special symposia and invited other women to speak in the sessions. Increasing participation by women in AFS leadership roles is an efficient way to increase participation by women at large.
