"Because I Am a Woman": A Study of Culture, School, and Futures in Science.
Ndunda, Mutindi; Munby, Hugh
Science Education, v75 n6 p683-99 Nov 1991
Describes how young women in two different Kenyan schools look at their "science futures"--futures in science courses and careers as they perceive them. Argues that European educational system in Kenya has exploited traditional Kenyan gender roles and has widened rift between opportunities afforded men and women. Concludes that the different cultures in the school affect the girls' science futures. (PR)
