Abstract: This text starts with counts of men and women authors quoted in some early and late works of organization theory. An analysis of works of classical authors, and of our own works, reveals that over the years the proportion of references to women’s work has increased, although it is still far from half of the references. The text invites to a discussion about why women authors are systematically underrecognized, and initiates by listing some reasons for why full names in references instead of initials might enhance the proper recognition of research conducted by women.
