Abstract:On the surface, it seems that women are no longer excluded from academia and that the social changes in the last century made women ‘equal among equals’ in the academic institutions. Although it is true that women students today consist of more than half of the undergraduate students, the higher one goes in the academic level the smaller the proportion of women one finds. Thus, although the overall proportion of women PhD students has improved, there are great differences between the fields of study, and while we find an improvement in the drop-off rate of women between the MA and PhD in the social sciences, in the humanities the change in women students proportion was for the worse. The gap between the MA and the PhD in 1997 was 19% and it grew to 30% in 2001. This study is concerned with the proportion of women students at the Ph.D. and M.A. level and includes a qualitative and quantitative research of the reasons for the drop in women students' proportion at this junction in some departments, while in other departments we do not find this phenomenon. The findings of this research support the hypothesis that asserted the existence of gender differences within universities and departments regarding career aspirations that lead more men than women to regard the pursuit of an academic career as a goal. In the course of MA studies, students develop diverse aspirations as to an academic career, and more men than women harbor these ambitions and go on for a Ph.D.
