"Imagine that your lawyer, your doctor, your priest, rabbi, or minister, your Senator and Representative, your
     mayor, the president of your institution, most of its trustees, almost all of the deans and most of your
     colleagues were all women. How would you feel? " Sandler, Bernice R., 1986

"Widespread acceptance of a stereotyping of scientists and engineers as
stolidly male from school to university level is likely to be
important. The dearth of senior women scientists in the
public arena means that girls have few role models with
whom to identify, and few female mentors to encourage them. "
Dr. Nancy Lane, Cambridge University, 1999
