At Baker University, I am a Biology major and a Chemistry minor. That is, I am consistently wading knee-deep through the ‘Hard Sciences’, which also includes Physics, a class I am enrolled in for this Summer. I am also a woman. My Organic Chemistry class has three people – two of which, are women – and my Zoology class has six – with four, evening out things to two thirds of the class being female as far as I can see. There had never previously been any reason for me to question my security in the science fields, at least from personal experience. However, lately I’ve noticed a problem as clear and accurate as an image under a microscope: the social detriment of women in the science professions.
