How do I know this? I am an exception as I have a bachelor's in physics.
The few women that worked for us were "quiters". They couldn't cut it and weren't willing to give the time required for getting to the top.
My granddaughter LOVES mathematics. She's perfect for my profession. None of us can spell!!!
Agreed. I hear more "but it's hard" or "I don't know how you do it!" from women when they talk about computers (I am a programmer). In my experience the majority of the women in our computer science program in college wanted to A. work in middle management B. do something technology-related, but not programming or C. teach. I admit that I would love to teach if it paid better.
You are correct, and I have a degree in computer science. I was originally a chemical engineering major, and there were very few women in that degree. Computer science had more women in it than chemical engineering, but we were still the minority.
My wife hates math, science and engineering. I must be preventing her from liking these subjects, so I must be sexist...
