Recent research reports significant faculty bias against women students in science.
However, Williams and Ceci have an op-ed piece in the NY Times stating a conflicting conclusion from their recent research: there’s no bias aainst women in math-intensive fields in STEM. Their piece links to a forthcoming article by them.
