O período está terrível e estou sem tempo de colocar posts mais elaborados. Para a notícia não ficar velha, vejam um comentário sobre uma enquete da American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) sobre as mulheres na ciência. Lembrem que as mulheres já são a maioria dos novos doutores nos EEUU e no Brasil, divulgada há pouco aqui no Totum (Mais Doutoras que Doutores).
Veja alguns trechos da notícia dada pela AAAS:
"A survey conducted by AAAS and Science at the request of L’Oréal USA suggests that “gender still matters with regard to women’s being able to be successful and to move ahead in science,” said Shirley Malcom, director of education and human resources at AAAS."
"According to the National Science Board’s 2010 Science & Engineering Indicators, women with doctoral degrees in science and engineering held a third of all faculty positions in academia as of 2006. Women’s representation was significantly lower in key fields, however. Women represented only about 11% of all full-time faculty researchers in engineering, for example, and less than one-fourth of those in computer sciences."
