Rayner-Canham, Marelene F.; Rayner-Canham, Geoffrey W.
Journal of Chemical Education, v73 n3 p203-205 Mar 1996
Analyzes the enrollment patterns in chemistry during the first part of this century. Shows that the early progress of women in the first two decades of this century was not sustained and that a decrease in women's participation in all fields of chemistry was seen in the next few decades. Suggests explanations for these findings. (JRH)
