A study examining the relationship between gender and majoring in science surveyed 281 science and social science majors, 66 percent of whom were women, at a Canadian university. Women were less likely to major in science. High school preparation in mathematics and science accounted for over 40 percent of the effect of gender on majoring in science. (TD)
