Women's Education des femmes, Fall 1991 - Vol. 9, No. 2
Authors: Hilda Ching
Because of predicted labour shortages in the future, more women are being encouraged into scientific careers especially in engineering. However, the few women who are now in science are mostly in biology and biochemistry and in jobs which pay less than men's and with fewer opportunities for advancement.
In this paper, the author discusses some contradictory and contrasting feelings about women. To change the conditions of both science and women, she suggests making some connections. If we are going to encourage and increase the numbers of women in science, we need to understand and change the constructs of science and women.
