Stereotypes Can Drive Women To Quit Science

Researchers used devices that recorded 30 seconds of audio every 12 minutes to gather random samples of conversations between male and female research scientists at a university in an effort to understand why women fare more poorly than men in STEM fields.

When the scientists analyzed the audio samples, they found there was a pattern in the way the male and female professors talked to one another.

When male scientists talked to other scientists about their research, it energized them. But it was a different story for women.

Interesting data.
