On my previous comment:
"Hierarchy 101: Summers, Women and Math by Childress and Childress"
To find out how to increase women's participation in math and science, don't ask a guy at the top of the academic and social hierarchy. Ask people who are routinely discouraged by the way math and science are made to seem out of their reach. The full article can be found at: http://www.womenenews.org/article.cfm/dyn/aid/2221

In the "Note from the Editor" of JSAWS 10-1 I wrote about President Summer of Harvard U. and his mother: It was President Rudenstine's mother. Anyway, names do not change the meaning of my sermon..
If you want to learn more about President Summer and his mother, on March 3, 2005 The Harvard Crimson, which usually writes pro domo sua, has published the article
"Loves Him Like Only a Mother Could"
How does change happen?
