Bifurcation of a Common Path: Gender Splitting on the Road to Engineering and Physical Science Careers.
Lips, Hilary M.
Initiatives, v55 n3 p13-22 Fall 1992
Findings from 55 female and 42 male college students revealed that inclination toward mathematics/science was significantly, positively, and similarly related to likely careers in mathematical sciences. For physical and engineering science careers, however, there was little or no relationship between self-described interest in science and mathematics and likelihood of pursuing career in physical and engineering sciences among women.
