Teaching the majority : breaking the gender barrier in science, mathematics, and engineering by Sue Vilhauer Rosser( Book )

9 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 731 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents pioneering work in teaching by scientists, mathematicians, and engineers to attract and retain women in these areas. The physical sciences, mathematics, and engineering persist as the professional areas where women have not yet broken the gender barrier. A severe shortage of scientists beginning in the mid-1990s is predicted and becoming increasingly severe by the 21st century. Mainstream scientists are realizing that they must rethink the way science is taught if they are to attract more people, particularly more women, to the sciences. Each chapter in this volume is written by a teacher who has transformed her course to appeal successfully to women students in particular while retaining its appeal for male students. Their transformed curricula, expanded problem sets and laboratory exercises, and successful teaching techniques are presented to assist others in breaking the gender barrier in science and technology. Specific disciplines are covered in five parts: physics and engineering, chemistry, mathematics, computer science, and environmental science and geosciences. (Aim)
Biology & feminism : a dynamic interaction by Sue Vilhauer Rosser( Book )

8 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 693 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The link between biology and feminism is well established in history. Even as recently as the nineteenth century, preeminent men of science employed skewed biological theorizing to explain the disadvantaged position of women in our society. These male scientists argued that women are mentally inferior to men by design of evolution. They erroneously "proved" that the female of the human species has a relatively smaller brain than the male, attributing this "difference" to the fact that the energy that women use to reproduce is drawn off at the expense of their intellectual development. At odds with nineteenth-century feminist critics, men such as Freud, Darwin, Broca, and Spencer did not assign the supposed inferiority of women to such factors as their decreased access to education, believing instead that tangible biological differences subjugated women to men. In the latter part of the twentieth century we again see a link between biology and feminism that expresses itself through women's health issues, reproductive rights, and ecofeminism."

Women, science, and myth : gender beliefs from antiquity to the present by Sue Vilhauer Rosser( Book )

11 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 587 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Throughout history, many myths concerning the capabilities of women have received the stamp of approval from the world of science. Meanwhile, the scientific community itself has been notoriously slow in welcoming the work of women scientists. Is there a connection?" "Women, Science, and Myth: Gender Beliefs from Antiquity to the Present addresses this pivotal question head-on, offering a clear-eyed look at an area of lingering controversy in the world of science. It approaches the subject chronologically and in terms of long-running issues and themes. It examines the ways scientists have researched gender throughout history, the influence of those results on society's perceptions of women, and the impact those findings have had on the scientific community and on women, women scientists, and women's rights movements. the result is a timely and revealing resource that celebrates science's legitimate accomplishments while unmasking the "proven by research" sources of misbegotten beliefs about gender."--Jacket

Why are there so few women in science? In Breaking into the Lab, Sue Rosser uses the experiences of successful women scientists and engineers to answer the question of why elite institutions have so few women scientists and engineers tenured on their faculties. Women are highly qualified, motivated students, and yet they have drastically higher rates of attrition, and they are shying away from the fields with the greatest demand for workers and the biggest economic payoffs, such as engineering, computer sciences, and the physical sciences. Rosser shows that these continuing trends are not only
