Women In Science Face A Uphill Battle

Thursday, September 24th, 2009

The lack of women in science is causing problems to obtaining scientific goals. A study reports that there is a lack of information on women in science. This is of great concern, and the topic is being given top priority. Women in science are dropping out at each stage of their careers.

Women often out number men in several fields in technology, yet they rarely find their way to the boardrooms. The glass ceiling is real for women who work in science. Another reason for lack of advancements is that women sacrifice their careers to care for the household.
