Women in Science and Technology, and the Role of Public Policy.
Thirty years after the advent of the modern women's movement, women are still underrepresented in the fields of science, technology, and mathematics. This paper presents statistical snapshots--facts--of the situation for girls and women in education and employment, and discusses what makes these facts problems for our society. The paper suggests that teacher education on gender equity in the classroom will help girls and women persist in these fields. (AA)
