What percentage of FCS's are eligible for such awards? (I'm guessing a higher percentage than got them) I see the same problem in geosciences.... I guess we just have to wait until the old, white dudes start to die off!
Anonymous - Probably a pretty high percentage. ACM is an international organization that stems both industry and academia. It's only in Western countries we see this large lack of women in STEM fields; things aren't as stark in many other places.
Great posts, and great blog! Check out our new blog, "Chick, Filleted" -- we're trying to penetrate the indifference, too. http://chickfilleted.com
