    Women in science and engineering are hindered not by lack of ability but by bias and “outmoded institutional structures” in academia, an expert panel reported yesterday. The panel, convened by the National Academy of Sciences, said that in an era of global competition the nation could not afford “such underuse of precious human capital.” Among other steps, the report recommends altering procedures for hiring and evaluation, changing typical timetables for tenure and promotion, and providing more support for working parents.


    Gee what took them so long to figure that out . EA games was forced to change working hours for their working moms to keep them in the industry . I really don't see the difference other than a mom should be at home with young ones ?

    Make the hours better , or work from home ?

    I've no problem with them changing working hours so that working moms can remain in their chosen industry.

    Just as long as I can have those same hours too, should I have a reason to want them.
    .
    Political correctness is based on the principle that it's possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.
