Why do so few women choose a career in science--even as they move into medicine and law in ever-greater numbers? In one of the most comprehensive studies of gender differences in science careers ever conducted, Women in Science provides a systematic account of how U.S. youth are selected into and out of science education in early life, and how social forces affect career outcomes later in the science labor market. Studying the science career trajectory in its entirety, the authors attend to the causal influences of prior experiences on career outcomes as well as the interactions of multiple life domains such as career and family. While attesting to the progress of women in science, the book also reveals continuing gender differences in mathematics and science education and in the progress and outcomes of scientists' careers. The authors explore the extent and causes of gender differences in undergraduate and graduate science education, in scientists' geographic mobility, in research productivity, in promotion rates and earnings, and in the experience of immigrant scientists. They conclude that the gender gap in parenting responsibilities is a critical barrier to the further advancement of women in science.

Faculty of Education, Monash University, Australia. The dichotomy between equality & difference is a central issue in both feminist & education debates. Georgina Tsolidis examines this dichotomy with particular reference to gender, ethnicity & schooling & argues that in the context of reformist education policies targeting gender equity & the affirmation of cultural difference, the schooling experiences of ethnic minority girls provide insights into ways of challenging this dichotomy. School-based case studies are provided as a means of challenging the predominant view, reiterated through education policies, that these girls are victims of a culture clash which establishes a 'minority as backward, majority as enlightened' binary. Feminist theorizations of difference are used as a means of interpreting the contradictions between the representations of ethnic minority girls in education policies & the vision of them which emerges through the case-studies. This then provides the basis for a speculative exploration of the equality & difference dichotomy in relation to transformative curriculum & pedagogy. Contents: Introduction - Feminist theorizations of cultural difference - Theorizing cultural difference in relation to Australian feminism - The construction of ethnic minority girls in education policy literature - Case studies: a girl's reputation - Case studies: academic aspirations & experiences - Conclusion - References - Index.

Access to post-secondary education in Canada continues to be a controversial issue, and the roles of factors such as student financial aid, family background, and personal aspirations remain insufficiently understood. Persistence towards graduation even less so. Beginning with three broad overview chapters and continuing with a series of analyses on particular elements of the access and persistence dynamic, Who Goes? Who Stays? What Matters? addresses choice, opportunity, and barriers - including financial ones - related to post-secondary participation. Contributors provide compelling insights into the factors that begin to operate long before students reach the end of high school, and point to the need to consider policy initiatives that start equally early and go beyond simply making schooling affordable. With a strong empirical emphasis and based primarily on Statistics Canada's Youth in Transition Survey, the studies in this collection make an important contribution that will inform policy discussions and decision-making in years to come.
