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 734 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 691 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Biology and Feminism: A Dynamic Interaction, Sue V. Rosser offers an intriguing explanation of the possible bias of biological theories. Rosser maintains that the modern scientific method, accepted as objective and factual, may instead be colored by the values and assumptions of the traditional, male scientist. Her study offers critiques of the traditional scientific research method from the viewpoint of a number of different feminist theories. Rosser also details the contribution of several eminent women of science, past and present, to illustrate the impact of feminism on biological theories, and points out that ironically, biology has had a much greater impact on feminism than feminism has had on biology. Finding that the standard methods of teaching biology have changed little, Rosser presents models for transforming curricula. Her proposed changes aim to identify and correct unconscious biases and teach student store spect differences. Embracing a wide range of studies, this innovative and thoughtful commentary will be of use to biology, health sciences, women's studies, anthropology, sociology, psychology, and history students alike."--Jacket

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

10 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 585 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

Breaking into the lab : engineering progress for women in science by Sue Vilhauer Rosser( Book )

16 editions published between 2011 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 277 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

This volume examines major issues facing successful women in academic science.

Some evidence suggests that budget cuts and an increasing reliance on technology have impacted higher education and exacerbated gender issues, but until now, little research has focused directly on the lingering effects of these changes
