Fig1: SPR membership—male/female

Mentions: Among information provided by Goske et al. [4] on the 1999 SPR member survey, was that the average age of its female members (45 years) was lower than that of the male members (49 years). In 2001, Forman et al. [5] reported that the younger half of the survey respondents were women, while the older half was constituted by males. Both authors found that the representation of women in the field was increasing rather than decreasing. SPR 2009 data shows an even higher proportion of women in pediatric radiology, up to 38%. Both Table 1 and Fig. 1 depict the representation of women within the SPR, from its foundation in 1958 to 2009.Table 1
