A friend and I recently exchanged email in which it was observed that
Out of 53 ISA presidents, there have been 7 women and 0 African Americans.
For the record, the ISA was founded in the late 1950s, and the first female president, Dina Zinnes, served in 1980-81. Helga Haftendorn followed in 1990-91, Susan Strange in 1995-96, and Peg Hermann in 1998-99. In the new millennium Ann Tickner, Beth Simmons, and Etel Solingen have each served. The vast majority of ISA presidents were born in the US, and virtually all are of European heritage.
Were one to scrutinize membership on the ISA Council, I suspect one would learn that the gender pattern would equalize sometime around the mid-1990s, Americans would be less dominant than they have been in the Presidency, but those of European descent would be almost equally as dominant (i.e., >= 90%). But those are guesstimates.
I assume none of this is surprising, though perhaps you will agree that it is noteworthy.
