Nowadays, we live in a society where science is presented under social and dichotomic stereotypes; where women have not had the same opportunities as men. Nevertheless, Mexican women have slowly broken certain dichotomies and stereotypes related to gender stereotypes, and they have also demonstrated their great dexterity, skill and knowledge they have ventured into postgraduate studies, administrative jobs, scientific disciplines and research centers. They have also gained access to the National System of Researchers (in Spanish: Sistema Nacional de Investigadores or SNI), an institution which symbolizes quality and prestige of the Mexican scientific contributions. Taking this into account, the following research was carried out under the quantitative paradigm, it is a descriptive research and it uses an empiric-analytic approach. Its purpose is to know the current situation of the female researchers within the SNI. The sampling consists of 184 people, ranging from 30 to 72 years old, with an average of 44.94 years old; the mode was 40 years old. The data was collected via the survey. To carry out the analysis, the Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS version 24) was used. Among the most important general data of the research, it was found that 60.8% of the researchers are in level 1 within the SNI, and the majority of them are in Discipline IV (Human and Social Sciences) with 35.8%; 47.8% of the women answered that they Sometimes feel discrimination toward their scientific job. The main factor which hinders their job opportunities and their family and work life was the lack of 19.2%. The main factor which hinders the female researchers’ productivity was the excessive workload 22%.

Key words: Women, SNI, Gender, Equity, Equality.
