Psycho-Social Determinants of Gender Prejudice in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics
Nnachi, N. O.; Okpube, M. N.
Journal of Education and Practice, v6 n17 p190-194 2015
This work focused on the "Psycho-social Determinants of Gender Prejudice in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM)". The females were found to be underrepresented in STEM fields. The under-representation results from gender stereotype, differences in spatial skills, hierarchical and territorial segregations and discrimination on job allocation. Social-psychological interventions, role models and self affirmation were examined as strategies for increasing women representation in STEM fields (unbalancing the imbalance in gender representation in STEM).
