According to figures widely cited by NSF program officers
(and the What's New newsletter), the single largest source
of disparity between men and women at the NSF was among
reviewers:  female scientists with PhD's who have not done
so should consider filling out the reviewer applicant form
available on the NSF's Internet archive (stis.nsf.edu).

Also, the re-submission rate for rejected grant proposals
is lower among women than among men.  The take-home message
there:  revise and send 'em back in again, gals!  The avg.
number of submissions per grant (for those who eventually
*get* NSF grants) is said to be (a staggering) 1.9!!  So
you're in good company.  ;-)
