there's been really interesting discussion regarding the pipeline and how
it applies to women at the university level, which is indeed where we do
lose a lot.. my particular problem is that we lose more far earlier, in
our middle (jr.high) and high schools.  what is the problem with science
education?  also the probable lack of high profile role models for our
girls in high school, who think science isn't something they could do...

i'm just putting out some ramblings... sorry if it doesn't make sense...
