Hanson, Sandra L.
Journal of Women and Minorities in Science and Engineering, v6 n2 p169-87 2000
Examines the effects of gender and a number of family experiences on young people's chances of going into postsecondary science training and science occupations in the years immediately following high school. Indicates that gender plays a significant role in choices involving early science training and occupations, especially training, and young women are less likely to make science their choice.
