Gender Representation on Journal Editorial Boards in the Mathematical Sciences by Chad M. Topaz and Shilad Sen. PLOS ONE August 18, 2016 http://dx.doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0161357

From the abstract: Women are known to comprise approximately 15% of tenure-stream faculty positions in doctoral-granting mathematical sciences departments in the United States. Compared to this group, we find that 8.9% of the 13067 editorships in our study are held by women ……  Our findings provide the first measure of gender distribution on editorial boards in the mathematical sciences, offer insights that suggest future studies in the mathematical sciences, and introduce new methods that enable large-scale studies of gender distribution in other fields.
