This document provides 111 of the 246 page book by Carol Colatrella. This book analyzes the ways in which fictional and cinematic narratives consider “the leaky pipeline problem”: that women drop out of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) at a number of stages of education and career. The question of what keeps women from participating in proportional numbers in scientific and technical fields has generated much scholarly and media attention in recent decades.

The WEEA Equity Resource Center's online course Engaging Middle School Girls in Math and Science is in its fourth offering as this guide is being field-tested, and has received enthusiastic responses from the teachers and others who have taken it. Though the intended audience for this course is middle school math and science teachers, the need for an easily accessible, high quality training course in gender equitable classroom strategies has become clear from the range of people who have registered and taken the course (curriculum developers, teacher trainers, after school program coordinators). This guide is part of our ongoing efforts to assist and support teachers both in exploring educational equity issues and in translating this learning into realistic, doable strategies and activities that work for them.179_Promote_Equaility_in_Science.pdf
