Abstract Gender inequality in higher education has steadily declined in recent decades in most Western countries, in large part due to the steady increase in women's participat ion in higher education. This phenomenon is visible in the Netherlands as well, but important questions about gender inequality remain. This article explores whether gender inequality in higher ed ucation is evident at the highest level-that of doctoral education -and what this means for initial employment outcomes. We find a significant increase in the number of women participating in doctoral education in the Netherlands. The number of female PhD candidates has more than doubled over the past twenty years, making the Netherlands a leader in gender equality in higher education participation. However, sign ificant gender differences remain. We find , for example, significant gender differences across disciplines and significant gender differences in initial employment outcomes for recent doctoral graduates. Women, more than men, are more likely to work part-time, are less likely to have a permanent contract outside of academia and are more likely to work in academia rather than the private sector. Implications for further research are discussed.
