APS Sets New Membership Record

The American Physical Society (APS), which is the largest professional society for physicist, sets a new membership record this past Jan 8, 2007. It broke the 46,000 barrier, reaching a total of 46,293.

The increase is attributed to a significant increase in student membership.

But has the lowly percentage of women in physics gone up? Bet not, as one can surmise by the lack of mention. It would be more interesting to know the percentage of female students and how that bodes for the future.

The highly salaried female executive can't seem to make a dent in the lack of women in physics issue.
