2002

Larry Summers created a firestorm of controversy when he gave his opinion about the reasons for the scarcity of female scientists and mathematicians. 

 

This is a major area of interest for the International Olympiad researchers.  We conducted a series of international investigations with the female Olympians to ascertain the reasons for the gender gap among career technical personnel.  We summarize our findings in a special Theme Issue in the Journal of Research in Education.  We supply pdf copies of these articles below.
