An Overview on Research on Gender and Under-Represented Ethnicities in Physics Education 

written by Laura McCullough

This chapter provides an overview of the physics education research focusing on two under-represented populations in physics: women and under-represented races and ethnicities. A brief overview of the historical data on the participation of women and under-represented races leads into some of the questions that PER has asked regarding how physics education may differently affect these groups. Suggestions for those interested in doing such research are provided.
