Resum

The article reviews research on inequalities in access, promotion and scientific productivity between men and women in the university, one of the most important social institutions and thus both a reference point for and a reflection of the phenomena which occur in many other areas of society. Different disciplines, including geography, have approached this issue, looking for explanations and developing debate around them. Socio-demographic, cultural and historical factors persist, in spite of recent measures in favour of gender equality and equity in the academic world. The massive entrance of women, as students, into university has not been accompanied by any equivalent increase in women teachers or researchers, and these latter have encountered important barriers to consolidating their careers, having to adopt patently masculine models with important differential costs com-pared to men.
