This report was written by AAAS(American Association for the Advancement of Science). The minority women were, in fact, falling somewhere in between the funded efforts to improve science opportunities for minorities and efforts to advance women in science. There was little information available on the status of minority women in science and virtually no literature that would advise institutions on the nature of the problems or the remedies. After 35 Years, Evelynn M. Hammonds who wrote this article on blog, reevaluate this report again. View External Website170_1975-DoubleBind.pdf
The study, funded by NSF, reveals some of the challenges that women in engineering have to confront in their careers. From the executive summary: "Women comprise more than 20% of engineering school graduates, but only 11% of practicing engineers are women, despite decades of academic, federal, and employer interventions to address this gender gap. Project on Women Engineers Retention (POWER) was designed to understand factors related to women engineers' career decisions. Over 3,700 women who had graduated with an engineering degree responded to our survey and indicated that the workplace climate was a strong factor in their decisions to not enter engineering after college or to leave the profession of engineering. Workplace climate also helped to explain current engineers' satisfaction and intention to stay in engineering."View External Website35_NSF_Women-Executive-Summary-0314.pdf
This article, authored by Girls RISEnet research advisor Dr. Angela B. Ginorio, discusses the roles data play in forming information and knowledge pertinent to women of color in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).View External Website

AAUW’s 2010 research report Why So Few? Women in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics presents in-depth yet accessible descriptions of eight key research findings that point to environmental and social barriers — including stereotypes, gender bias and the climate of science and engineering departments in colleges and universities — that continue to block women’s participation and progress in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). The report also includes up to date statistics on girls’ and women’s achievement and participation in these areas and offers new ideas for what each of us can do to more fully open scientific and engineering fields to girls and women.175_Why-So-Few-Women-in-Science-Technology-Engineering-and-Mathematics.pdf
