Greater efforts should be made to recruit women into child psychiatry research. Women's tendencies to minimize their creativity and to avoid competition and criticism and women's underrepresentation and isolation in research and academia should be addressed. Nontraditional lateral tracks should be developed for women during phases of intense professional and personal demands. Mentorships, stimulating collegial relationships, and open forums at local and national levels to address these issues may encourage women's growth as child psychiatry researchers. In addition, changes for improving hiring, promoting, and facilitating career development for women are mandated. J. Am. Acad. Child Adolesc. Psychiatry, 1991, 30, 6:1009–1014.
