Must Women choose between science and femininity? Are we really choosing? I was going through recent tweets by WITI (Women in Technology international) and I came upon an article re-tweeted by them titled: ‘New Report Says Girls Feel They Must Choose Between Femininity and Sciences’
The article states that boys and girls perform equally in math and science testing when they begin elementary school, and show about the same level of enjoyment of the subjects. However, by 8th grade, twice as many more boys than girls, are interested in STEM careers, (i.e. Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics).
