Double Jeopardy? Gender Bias Against Women in Science

Academic report about gender and racial bias in STEM fields. Intersectional study of barriers in STEM fields.

Excerpt

(Mitchell & Tetlock, 2006). The answer is yes. Gender bias exists, and it exists for women of color: 100% of the sixty scientists interviewed for this study reported encountering one or more of these patterns of gender bias
