[Correspondence] Author gender in The Lancet journals
Despite substantial advances in recent decades, gender inequality persists in many scientific fields,1 including medicine2,3 and global health. In an upcoming theme issue on women in science, medicine, and global health,4 The Lancet will focus on helping to understand and remove women’s disadvantage in these fields. Nevertheless, dedicating a few words to women’s representation in The Lancet journals is worthwhile. Here, I present a snapshot of the gender of the authors who publish in The Lancet journals.
