Gender Differences in Career Choices: Why Girls Don't Like Science

Unattributed, Canadian Council on Learning, Nov 05, 2007
Commentary by Stephen Downes

I was ready to get all negative about this item, but it does appear to be well grounded (no crockus here) and the overall assessment, "cultural or environmental factors, rather than biological ones, affect girls' interests and career choices," is in accord with my own understanding. It's worth noting, in passing, that when we pay 'special attention' to the advancement of girls and women in science, it is to balance the countervailing 'special attention' that created the need in the first place (especially from parents and media).
