Summary

This year's new class at the U.S. National Academy of Sciences (NAS) contains a record number of women. Seventeen are part of the 72 newly elected regular members, with four among the pool of 18 new foreign associates. Those proportions are roughly twice the percentage of full professors at U.S. universities. Overall, women now make up 7.7% of the academy's 2015 living members.
