Nearly a quarter of women in political science delay starting a family until they establish their academic careers, a new study shows. The study, published in the April edition of PS: Political Science & Politics, also showed that other women wait until they are tenured. "We need to tell more of the success stories ... of women who have successfully navigated the tenure track as a mother. We need to hear more about women who do it well -- or at least try to do it -- and don't have that expectation that we have to wait," said study author Angela K. Lewis.
