Economics remains a field where cutting-edge research is primarily carried out by tenured or tenure-track academics. Academics in the United States must be promoted to tenure by their departments within six to eight years of being hired for them to remain in their jobs. Evidence points to women economists having a harder task passing this hurdle than men.
