Why do women have to match men's numbers in science? Who decided that?
If women want to stay at home and raise a family, why is that a bad choice?
Isn't it time for modern society to realize that women and men are different? Women are the ones who have the children. They are the ones tasked by evolution for the primary task of raising children (they have the mammary glands after all).
Maybe we should just stop trying to force women into the role of men and acknowledge their value as women, for a change.

About once a month at Sigma Xi headquarters, we liven up the lunch hour with an American Scientist Pizza Lunch talk. In these informal lectures, scientists describe new research to nonscientists. The series is light on jargon but heavy on solid science. Each Pizza Lunch offers an in-depth look at its subject, whether it's bedbugs or the smart grid.

JSTOR, the online academic archive, now contains complete back issues of American Scientist from its inception in 1913 (as Sigma Xi Quarterly) through 2005.
The table of contents for each issue is freely available to all users; those with institutional access can read each complete issue.
