Women in Mathematics: Problems of Orientation and Reorientation. Final Report.
Luchins, Edith H.
This problem-assessment study sought answers to the problems of why there are relatively few women in mathematics, what encouraged or discouraged contemporary women mathematicians, and what can be done to attract more women to the mathematical sciences. A questionnaire was developed and sent to members of the Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM). This document contains an analysis of the responses to the questionnaire, career patterns and interests, AWM respondents' present status, international problems, and varied attempts at explanations. The questionnaire and tables of responses are included in the appendices. (DT)
