why women leave the pipeline?

So - here is a question that has been nagging me for a while.  Who out
there has good stat's or opinons about what drives more women out of the
"academic pipeline?"  A few years ago, I read that it was not family but
just frustration and lack of interest with playing the game.  After all
the discussions of sports analogies, baking, a different potential
approaches men and women may take to careers in academics, I would really
be curious to hear from people on this one... 

Many people I know assume it is having families but I personally know more
women who have left because they absolutely cannot find a niche (or job)
in the system!  Drop me a line or post!
