An important read: Emma Pierson on gender and authorship position in science
This is a fascinating read: In Science, It Matters That Women Come Last | FiveThirtyEight. By Emma Pierson, who works at 23 and me. It has all sorts of references of use and details on authorship position in scientific publications and how gender and author position are correlated. Definitely worth a read.
