Type of paper: Abstract refereed

The paper sum up some of the findings from a survey among one thousand Danish Ph.D. students (all enrolled 1997). In order to discuss 'myths or realities' about 'gendered' Ph.D. students, the point of departure for discussing is some major conclusions about gender in an official Danish report on Ph.D. students and a Norwegian investigation of same-gender in graduate supervision. I want to indicate how easily statements turn into a continuing reproduction of myths about especially, female Ph.D. students.
