I don't have any answers to your questions. I can only tell you of my
experience. I am 49 years old, a wife and mother, and in my 9th year of
graduate school. I do not subscribe to the Male Model of graduate school
which requires 24 hour obsession with one's work. I have a life. I am
continually asked my my adviser and committee members if I am a
"part-time" graduate student. I insist that I am full time. But I feel I
am not taken seriously. I am seen as "not committed" and a dilettante.
How can I succeed in male-dominated science without subcribing to the
Male Model of graduate school?
