To Be Gifted or Feminine: The Forced Choice of Adolescence.
Silverman, Linda Kreger
Journal of Secondary Gifted Education, v6 n2 p141-56 Win 1994-95
Although equal numbers of highly gifted boys and girls are found from early childhood until about age 12, 98% of the preeminent adults are male. This may be because, during preadolescence and adolescence, girls receive societal messages that undermine gifted girls' confidence and motivation. A vigorous campaign is needed to establish gender equity in the schools. (Author/DB)
