I think I saw this fact stated in an article that was published in a special
"Women in Science" issue of Science a year or two ago.  I don't think
statistics were published, but maybe you could contact the author and find out
where that fact came from.  Sorry I can't be more specific, but you are not
just wishfully thinking, I remember seeing that info, too.
