Toys And Tools In Pink: Cultural Narratives Of Gender, Science And Technology

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.
