The ratio of male to female lecturers is relatively equal, but as academic positions become more senior the proportion of women declines.  

In 2014-15, 49 per cent of lecturers were female, but the proportion declines with seniority.

Only 39 per cent of senior lecturers were female and just 24 per cent of professors were female.

Women were also under-represented in positions of academic leadership (36 per cent), especially so among vice-chancellors and principals (18 per cent).
