. In 1986, an article coined the term ?women glass ceiling? referring to an invisible barrier blocking women from getting top jobs. Since then, this hypothesis has been studied in very different work environments. Here we evaluate the distribution of female Physicists in the Argentinean workforce, analyzing the distribution of women at different levels of education and research using several indicators. Although important imbalances still occur, our statistics have been encouraging regarding the numbers of the last years and seems to be changing towards the better.
