There are proportionally more women in astrophysics than in many other branches of physics, but they are still in a minority.  For many years the IAU (International Astrophysical Union)   has recorded separately its male and female membership. Using this data base I will review how the fraction of astrophysicists that are female has varied with time and by country.
