Ten years later, in the mid-2000's Sadker and Zittleman decided to revisit all the data and update their report with current research. Sadly, they didn't find much improvement. They did find improvement, but as the mountain of current research still shows, things have not improved much.
Please don't let dismissive reviews fool you. The folks doing this kind of research know that the Sadkers work is VERY up-to-date and is backed up by hundreds of other papers and studies that still show how far we have to go before more than half our population is allowed to be considered equal and is encouraged to achieve their full potential.
Don't believe me? Try looking at Hanson's Lost Talent, another book from the 90s or more recently, Hall's 'Who's Afraid of Madam Curie', or better yet, just do a Google Scholar search for 'gender bias' or 'stereotypes' and you'll find more than enough 'current' proof that things have not improved.
The less we try to convince ourselves that everything is just peachy, the better off we'll be -- and the better off our educational system will be.Read more ›
