People have offered many potential explanations for this discrepancy, but this ad highlights the importance of the social cues that push girls away from math and science in their earliest childhood years.
i want to actually comment on this because i have no idea where i would be now if i hadnt been encouraged to go into the sciences. my whole world in biology and chemistry and a&p- i live and breath science. this has been largely due to the fact that my parents always encouraged me and i had an aunt who was a lab tech at a college and gave me a microscope for my 8th birthday. exposure to the sciences and encouragement to pursue whatever anyone wants to do with their life is critical
im not saying force children into science or even sacrifice beauty or whats considered to be feminine as a girl to go into science but give them the fucking option to. if they dont like science, fucking fine. i know plenty of people who dont like it and like something else because liking what you do is important. but dont stifle someones curiosity or interest at the world at large because it doesnt fit into your gender norms.
im really fucking conflicted about how i have a greater chance at getting into schools or scholarships based on the fact that i am a girl going into the sciences because on one hand hell yeah i will take your money to learn everything i can and hell no because i should not be considered a minority in the scientific community. and i am so fucking happy everyday in classes where i get to see girls succeed and be inspired in science and i get to be a part of that.
