AbstractOn the Ground • In the last 30 years, women have increased in SRM membership percentage, which appears to have paralleled the number of women hired into academic positions and women entering the discipline. • Although the history of women as SRM members and rangeland educators is relatively short, the increase seems to reflect that of related disciplines. • Gender demographic changes have increased diversity within the SRM and many academic institutions, enhancing what each offers. • Disproportionately fewer women receiving recognition and advancing to leadership positions within SRM or higher ranks within academia may reflect opportunities for the range profession to address.
