Why Are There Still So Few Women in Science?

Can’t quite believe we are still having this problem — but then again it’s not really that surprising, given that attitudes are so slow to change! I’m particularly struck by the lack of encouragement given to women, and the resulting lack of confidence they have, which translates into choices other than the pursuit of science & engineering fields. . . Better media representation would certainly help! Another case of “you can’t be it if you don’t see it,” I’m afraid.
