Patterns in STEM grades of girls vs. boys
A new study, led by UNSW Sydney PhD student Rose O'Dea, has explored patterns in academic grades of 1.6 million students, showing that girls and boys perform very similarly in STEM — including at the top of the class. The analysis, published today in the journal
, casts doubt on the view that there are fewer women in STEM-related jobs because they aren't as capable in those subjects as men — a notion that has been supported by the concept that gender differences in variability lead to gender gaps in associated fields.
