Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

One of the main reasons for social and economic gender inequity in our society is closely connected to the unsatisfactory level of math and science that girls choose to learn while in high school Not learning enough mathematics, physics, chemistry, and computer science limits the access of many girls to high prestige professions, whether mathematics-related, e.g. engineering, economics, or management, or not necessarily math-related, e.g. law or psychology.
