Connecting our love of fashion and the “girls aren’t good a math” issue…
BUST Magazine covers the news that a new report says girls feels they must choose between femininity and Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM):
By analyzing institutional and interpersonal obstacles that might be to blame, True Child suggests, “these trends are connected to girls’ perception of STEM as masculine and their internalization of feminine norms. Girls are caught in a ‘double conformity’ bind, in which they must opt out of femininity or opt out of STEM.”
Perhaps this explains the plethora of shopping available at gambling meccas like Las Vegas; while high rollers etc. are given more “masculine” perks.
