I saw this post on Mark Guzdial’s blog. The last point intrigued me
About 82% of technical women have a partner who works fulltime, compared with 37% of technical men. (Anita Borg Institute)
I wonder what the ratios are for women in academia? I wonder how many have a partner that also works in academia as well as having a partner who works, and how that compares with men in academia. Also I wonder whether it varies by discipline at all. Does anyone know?
