Financial assistance for the research was provided by the Australian Government Office for Women and several other private, public and tertiary agencies.
Skip to content Ontario. This section of the report looks at rational choice theory and one of its subsidiaries, routine activities theory. The discussion will commence with an explanation of each of the theoretical perspectives. The research literature is then reviewed, exploring the applicability and limitations of the perspectives. This is followed by a brief consideration of potential policy implications. Rational choice theory is based on the fundamental tenets of classical criminology, which hold that people freely choose their behaviour and are motivated by the avoidance of pain and the pursuit of pleasure.
Mate choice is one of the primary mechanisms under which evolution can occur. The evaluation will then incur a response of some sort. These mechanisms are a part of evolutionary change because they operate in a way that causes the qualities that are desired in a mate to be more frequently passed on to each generation over time. For example, if female peacocks desire mates who have a colourful plumage , then this trait will increase in frequency over time as male peacocks with a colourful plumage will have more reproductive success. Mate choice is one of two components of sexual selection , the other being intrasexual selection. Ideas on sexual selection were first introduced in , by Charles Darwin , then expanded on by Ronald Fisher in
By Peter Meiksins, Ph. Each year, we review the most important research that explores the experiences of female engineers and offers insights into the continued underrepresentation of women in the profession. The hope is that this will help individual engineers recognize that their situation is not unique. We hope, as well, that a better understanding of the factors limiting the numbers of women in engineering and hindering progress toward gender equity will point to solutions that can be pursued, both individually and collectively, by women and men working in the field. The issue of gender equity in engineering has become front-page news. Strickland was only the third female recipient of the Nobel Prize in Physics in its more than year history.

As mentioned in the preface, this chapter discusses a wide range of educational questions, beginning with those of interest primarily to undergraduates and ending with the transition to full-time employment. For quick reading, you can use the headings to pick out particular topics. However, we feel that most of the themes discussed in this chapter will be of interest to students at all levels, as well as to faculty advisers and administrators. Many students start thinking about the possibility of a career when their interest is ignited by a high-school or undergraduate teacher or some other role model.
Although the gender gap in math course-taking and performance has narrowed in recent decades, females continue to be underrepresented in math-intensive fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics STEM. Career pathways encompass the ability to pursue a career as well as the motivation to employ that ability. Individual differences in cognitive capacity and motivation are also influenced by broader sociocultural factors. We then describe the potential biological and sociocultural explanations for observed gender differences on cognitive and motivational factors and demonstrate the developmental period s during which each factor becomes most relevant. We then propose evidence-based recommendations for policy and practice to improve STEM diversity and recommendations for future research directions.

Sexual selection is a mode of natural selection in which members of one biological sex choose mates of the other sex to mate with intersexual selection , and compete with members of the same sex for access to members of the opposite sex intrasexual selection. These two forms of selection mean that some individuals have greater reproductive success than others within a population , for example because they are more attractive or prefer more attractive partners to produce offspring. The females then arrive and choose the males with the deepest croaks and best territories.
Metrics details. Women approach birth using various methods of preparation drawing from conventional healthcare providers alongside informal information sources IIS outside the professional healthcare context. The level of antenatal preparedness women feel can have significant and long lasting implications on their birth experience and transition into motherhood and beyond.
