Why Are We Still Worried about Women in Science?

By Sue V. Rosser and Mark Zachary Taylor

from the article:

Why has the women-in-science question not been resolved after years of debate and the investment of millions of federal and foundation dollars in programs encouraging women to enter science and engineering? What is the evidence for discrimination in academia, when many more women now earn degrees in science and engineering compared with thirty years ago?

This 2009 article published by the America Association of University Professors  (read here) was co-authored by STEM-UP PA Advisory Board member Sue V. Rosser. The main points are still salient to this day, and well worth a read.
