The fact that gender studies at the academy focuses on women is due to the fact that women are more disadvantaged than their male colleagues. Women academicians are researchers, teachers, even if the numbers are few, they are the administrators, the parents, and the wife and the list can be extended. However, the disadvantages women experience in academia can be an advantage for men. For this reason, it may be a more holistic approach to create a theory for male academics to take advantage of. In this study, it was aimed to portray the difficulties of being a female academician in Turkey in the light of national and international literature. In addition, the picture reveals a relatively different female academics profile in Turkey, especially in the developed western countries. According to this, being a female academician in Turkey requires confronting the main responsibilities of gender roles such as multiple responsibilities, non-representation in management, and minority in areas of higher interest such as science. However, it will not be right to put the low representation of female academics, particularly in the administrative processes and in the fields of science into gender-only perceptions. This may be due to natural gender and female scholars’ own preferences. The in-depth study of the field will be clarified. Despite all the negative situations, female academics are happy in Turkey, satisfied with their work and love to be academics.
