Contents

I have been fortunate to meet many brilliant, inspiring and successful female academics over the years: Uta Frith, Christina Salmivalli and Francesca Happé, to name just a few I would consider 'mentors' and who have appeared in these pages in 2014. I work for a Society with a female President, a female CEO and 75 per cent female membership. Yet despite a significant presence leading some to discuss the 'feminisation' of psychology, women remain heavily underrepresented at the higher levels of academia.

On p.918, Fionnuala Murphy and colleagues call for action. What has helped some women get to the top of their profession, and how can we remove barriers for the next generation?
Nurturing the fresh roots of the discipline is a recurring theme through another packed issue. And while we're talking new beginnings, please browse our relaunched site at www.thepsychologist.org.uk. Alongside @psychmag on Twitter, it's the complete experience for the membership and beyond.
