I’m sick and tired of people saying that women are not cut for some fields, namely engineering, physics, computer science, etc. Women hate math and everything that is too technical – they say. Women go to arts, humanities, and social sciences. And even though a large number of women are entering natural sciences, engineering, and other male-dominated fields, they are still a minority. Several factors explain it: socialization; gender roles; social structure; social networks; peer groups; education; and culture, to name a few. Here’s one of the reasons by fabulous Zack Weiner:

    Boa tarde, Barbara Neves
    Sou professor do seu irmão este ano lectivo e falou-me do seu blogue e pensou (e fez muito bem) que também a Barbara gostaria muito de conhecer e seguir o meu blogue também.
