Title: It's not rocket science: gender issues and physics
Author: Blanco, Julie Deann
Abstract: This study seeks to examine the inequality that exists within physics , a predominately male dominated field . Using data from the American Institute of Physics , in College Park , Maryland , this study examines what men and women do after they complete a bachelor's degree in physics . . Be examining sociological factors , such as socialization and Jean Lipman Blumen's control myths , one is able to see that men and women are found in very distinctive fields that not only accommodate their families , but also greatiy influence their salaries . The examination of other factors such as race , having children , graduating from a private or public institution , and job interruptions are also explored in the pursuit to understand the differences that exists between the men and women within this discipline .
