This analysis discusses the social norm and professional practice of gender bias in the sciences and engineering. The analysis uses gender bias to explain the gender gap between male and female scientists and engineers at the academic and professional level in American culture.

From the Paper:

"Women have come a long way as professionals over the past half century. Women have made advances as scientists and engineers, with a handful of them heads of universities and chief executive officers in scientific or engineering companies. The problem with this development is that only a few women have progressed to the top of these fields, rather than roughly half which is their number in the general population. The main reason for this is the social and professional practice or phenomenon known as gender bias."
