Women in STEM

Looking at gender issues from a science point of view, specifically physics, there are not many women involved the STEM field. Physics require maths, so I think that not many females are involved due to the fact that they are taught that “girls are not good at math” or might feel that they would bring all girls down if they even tried to do math. When a girl fail to do math, people criticize the whole female sex. On the other when a guy fail to do math, people only criticize HIM, saying HE’s dumb. 

In our physics class this week, we focused on women in STEM; our assignment was to write a biography about a female scientist. Attached below is my writing of Mae C. Jemison.
