I really don't like this argument because I think it creates more
distance between men and women scientists than there already is. Even
if it's true, it's counterproductive to talk about it. What I really
believe is that different PEOPLE do science differently and one cannot
lump all members of an entire gender in one category. I think most
women are less competitive than most men due to social conditioning, but I
know some women who are more cut-throat than almost all the men I know.
>I know about some scholars such as Evelyn Fox Keller who deal
If you read Keller carefully she doesn't really say this. Another
good source is "The Outer Circle", I believe the authors are Zuckerman
In my field, women I look to for support include Mary Kennedy, Barbara
Finlay, Carla Shatz, Martha Constantine-Paton, and Susan Udin.
