Our Ancestors in Their Successive Generations
This paper answers the question concerning how many women have been active in the journals of the Canadian Economics Association and its predecessor, the Canadian Political Science Association. Over seventy-five women were in economics departments before the 1990s; currently there are possibly 200 women. Over 200 women appeared in the journals. The data are scant and may overlook women outside academia. The paper is expository but it does open up the subject of women in the profession. It concludes that women's attachment to the profession may be looser than that of men and that this fact may affect their visibility.
