Summary

It's still a predominantly male body, but the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) continued its movement toward greater gender diversity this year with the election of nine women as new members. The 60-person class of 1999, announced last week at the academy's annual meeting, brings the total U.S. membership to 1909, of whom 118, or 6.2%, are women. Science lists the new members and their affiliations. (More details are available on the academy's Web site.)
