The paper summarizes the initial results of the study conducted by a group of researchers on the disadvantages of women in the field of social research. Twenty-one professors were interviewed on the following topics: gender inequalities, with focus on different career opportunities for men and women; the persistence of «automated responses», which indicate hostility towards strategies and practices to facilitate change in relationships between genders; obstacles that limit the redefinition of identity to develop new symbolic and material spaces to support women. The issues examined are intertwined and affect each other, presenting a generally problematic framework. Furthermore, this happens in a cultural environment that should be by definition open-minded and prioritize the passion for knowledge rather than resistance toward gender equality, which, ultimately, penalize women, men and institutions.
