Interesting stuff.

There's a great series of posts on the alleged gender differences in cognition over at the Pure Pendantry blog. It's not exactly light reading, but interesting nonetheless. Bottom line--the alleged disparities are far smaller than the popular media has recently alleged. In some cases, they're non-existent.

So, if that's the case, or if there's even a good argument to be made that that's the case, then why are women so few and far between inthe sciences? Could it be, oh, I don't know, sexism and the refusal to accomdate women and families as they enter their baby-making stage? That's what I'm thinking, but I suppose that's not exactly a big surprise.
