Gray Matter and Sexes: A Gray Area Scientifically

Date: January 24, 2005
Authors: Natalie Angier and Kenneth Chang
QUOTE: Has science found compelling evidence of inherent sex disparities in the relevant skills, or perhaps in the drive to succeed at all costs, that could help account for the persistent paucity of women in science generally, and at the upper tiers of the profession in particular?

ABSTRACT: Harvard president Lawrence H. Summers reignited a debate over why women are underrepresented at the highest levels in science and mathematics by saying the effect might be due to innate sexual differences. The article presents the views of quite a few different researchers on relevant biological and cultural factors.
