Inégalité de genre dans les études éthiopiennes

Abstract : I’d like to draw the attention of the scholar community on the gender inequality at the recent ICES20 in Mekelle. Very broadly, the figures are the following (using the book of abstract as main source).
For panel presenters, 74% of men and 26% of women. Among whom, 50% of Ethiopian men for 7,5% of Ethiopian women, and 23,5% of foreign men for 18,5% of foreign women.
Then, for panel organisers: 70% of men and 30% of women. Among whom, 39% of Ethiopian men for 3% of Ethiopian women, and 39% of foreign men for 27% of foreign women. This is not so surprising to see the involvement of women in organising the panels (in comparison with the figures of women in presenters), but Ethiopian women remain dramatically under-represented in this role.
The 3 keynotes speech were delivered by men exclusively (one Ethiopian and two foreigners), despite the tentative done by some members of the scientific board to promote women researchers at this role.
The main organising committee was almost exclusively masculine, when the scientific international committee was composed of 2/3 of men and 1/3 of women, with no Ethiopian among the later. (see This is the present of Ethiopian studies, shall it be its future ?
