American Sociological Association: Doctoral Degrees Awarded in Sociology by Gender
Number of Doctoral Degrees Awarded in Sociology Since 1966 by Gender
The number of women receiving PhDs in sociology has grown steadily since 1966. In contrast, the number of degrees awarded to men has declined steadily after a growth spurt from the mid-1960s to the mid-1970s. This gap, however, narrows after 2007 when the number of PhD recipients declined overall.
