written by Melissa H. Dancy
It is well known that women are underrepresented in physics. The prevailing view is that there is a "leaky pipeline" of female physicists which has lead to a focus on providing mentors and increasing the opportunity for girls to experience science. The assumption is that the numbers of women in physics can be increased by integrating women into the existing structure. Although it may seem reasonable, women are making only small gains in participation levels. In this paper, I explore the idea that there is no leaky pipeline. Rather, the environment is fundamentally "male" and women will never be equally represented until fundamental changes are made in both our educational system and in the cultural assumptions of our physics community.
