Five Approaches to Increasing Participation of Talented Women in Science Careers.
Smith, Walter S.
This paper is concerned with the need for science teachers to encourage women students to pursue professional science careers. It presents five hypotheses that are often assumed about women and counters with five strategies that can be used. These are: (1) Deficiency hypothesis/Remediation strategy; (2) Unfeminine career hypothesis/Career selling strategy; (3) Role conflict hypothesis/Role resolution strategy; (4) Job seeking hypothesis/Assertive skills strategy; and (5) Discrimination hypothesis/Antidiscrimination strategy. Each pair is discussed in detail. A bibliography is included. (MA)
