The Role of the National Science Foundation.
Rutherford, F. James
This speech first describes three activities conducted by the National Science Foundation's Women in Science Program. These are: (1) the Science Career Workshops; (2) the Science Career Facilitation Projects; and (3) The Visiting Women Scientists Project. Next, important issues to be considered for the future of these projects are presented. The issues cited are what kinds of science careers should women be considering, why is science considered a masculine field, how will the field change when more women become scientists, what can be done to increase scientific literacy for females, and what is the connection between ethnic minorities and women in science.
