Michele,

I would like to add one more important point. Women are smart and bring many skills, especially communication to the table, but men are still superior at analytical tasks. Despite all the progress made in equal rights etc., the bottom line is that only a small percentage of women can compete with men as engineers.

One thing that has irked me in the process of getting women up to par educationally (and they now are the majority of college graduates) is that boys are being dumbed down in school so I sent mine to an all boys Catholic High School where they thrived - it did not hurt that there were no 'distractions" around either :-)
