Why Are There Still So Few Women?

- Women have come a long way in science and engineering, even so the ratio of men to women in STEM fields in high. Some of this can be attributed to the social norm of how math and science is not for girls. Finding jobs in STEM majors can be difficult for women, which may lead to some disinterest in women to pursue that career. Now many people accept the fact that women are just as good as men at math and science but that wasn’t always the case. Eileen Pollack in her article “Why are there still so few women in science” describes how when she was in school she wanted to learn calculus and other science subjects but her principle told her that “girls never go on in science and math”....   [tags: Female, Woman, Boy, Physics]

Today, I see a world striving for equality and for their voices to be heard by the political leaders and other religious communities.

I also believe that one of the movie's main ideas was how to work people with words. This is especially true when Colonel Nathan R. Jessup (Jack Nicholson) is interrogated by Cruise. The way that Nicholson answers Cruise's questions is with such sophistication and knowledge that even though you know that he had his speech written out for him, it was delivered with such eloquence that it allows the...   [tags: movie essays]
