Women In Science - A Continuing Discussion

I cannot agree more! Here are some examples of what my female colleagues that I went to grad school, or post-docced with have moved onto - NIH grants coordinator, Executive at at philantrhopic foundation, Medical writer, High School teacher, Law School, Medical School, degree in education - the list is endless. Not that any of these are bad in any way, but does it concern anyone besides me that after investing in years of training many women have opted for these alternate careers. In comparison nine out of ten male colleagues have opted for a career in research! Could the discrepancy be more evident!
