AbstractFor decades, women have comprised only 25% of practicing radiologists in the United States, even though women now represent approximately 50% of medical students. Even fewer women in the United States rise into radiology leadership positions, with only 17% currently serving as a department chair. In contrast, globally, women represent over 33% of radiologists, with Thailand having the highest female representation at 85%. Despite increased awareness of this gender disparity in the United States, the field has seen little change in the diversity and inclusivity of its workforce.
