The number of women leaders at Ethiopian higher education institutions was significantly very low compared to that of men. It was the public’s knowledge that there were no women presidents or vice presidents in the higher education institutions for most of the lifetime of Ethiopian higher learning history.
In conformation to this, a study has shown that there were no women presidents or vice presidents in the sector and fewer than 5% of deans and only 3% of department heads in public universities were women.
Nevertheless, the Ministry of Science and Higher Education, recently led by a new female minister, Professor Hirut Woldemariam, who has also previously served as the vice president of the Addis Ababa University managed to positively shift the gender imbalance in the leadership of higher learning institutions to somehow better extent.
