Research has persistently shown that the numbers of women, a segment of society that comprises more than half of the world’s population, are under-represented in S&T; both in the use of S&T products and the uptake of science-related careers. This deficiency often manifests itself in the skills shortage that most countries, including those of southern Africa, face. This report published in 2012 presents the results of a survey done on the state of women in science and technology (S&T) in four southern African countries: Swaziland, Angola, Namibia and South Africa.
