Increasing initiatives to advance women's careers in science are almost exclusively based on data from high-income countries. To improve inclusion and diversity in science, data from low and middle-income countries (LMICs) are urgently needed to inform the debate and enable effective change. A literature search using the terms “women” and “science” or “research” revealed a scarcity of relevant publications from LMICs in peer-reviewed journals.
