Women are Naturally Awesome at Math

Well, at least they aren’t naturally any less awesome the men. Pay no attention to former Harvard president Lawrence Summers, whose remarks in 2005 suggested that women and men have innate differences which impacted their abilities in math and science. A report by the American Association of University Women released in March suggests that cultural biases may be to blame for an underrepresentation of women in science in math.

The association’s report acknowledges differences in male and female brains. But, Hill said, “none of the research convincingly links those differences to specific skills, so we don’t know what they mean in terms of mathematical abilities.”

It’s a good thing Mattel stopped selling it’s “Math is hard” Barbie soon after it was introduced in 1992.
