Women earned only 18% of all Computer Science degrees and made up less than 25% of the workers in engineering- and computer-related fields in 2009. These statistics stand in stark contrast to the gains they have achieved in law, medicine, and other areas of the workforce.  While this dearth of women in the science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields is often attributed to lack of innate ability or desire on the part of women, the director of the Clayman Institute for Gender Research at Stanford, sociology professor Shelley Correll, sees this explanation as incomplete.  And she offers a competing one: stereotypes.

Ukranian gal gets ribs removed to look like barbie?
Whether Lukyanova is real or fake, photoshopped or plastic surgery, Diane Levin, professor of education at Wheelock College in Boston, said the mystery of her existence is not the issue. The problem is that her flaunted image epitomizes and exemplifies the issue of objectification of women in today’s society.

Hey, I’d love if some of you sent in your reactions to that statement that Mitt’s wife made in regards to work. The whole working mother thing that is. I know there are diverse opinions on that one due to the knowledge that she had 5 paid nannies.

PSYCHOLOGICAL STUDY FOR WOMEN 18+. ALL WOMEN MAY PARTICIPATE. ESPECIALLY NEED SEXUAL MINORITIES. (EATING BEHAVIORS/DISORDERS IN WOMEN OF DIFFERENT SEXUAL ORIENTATIONS, BODY IMAGE, ETC.)
The study involves responding to a number of detailed questions about one’s eating habits and attitudes, as well as completion of two reaction time measures. Participants will complete the study online in a single session, and may opt to do so at any time on their own personal computers (not a mobile device). Most people are able to complete the study in approximately 30 minutes. In exchange for completing the online survey, participants will have the option to be entered into a raffle for a chance to win a $50 Amazon.com gift card.
I am wondering if you might be willing to forward this to any female friends/contacts (ages 18+)
