Special Issue "Women in Male-Dominated Domains"
A special issue of Social Sciences (ISSN 2076-0760).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 December 2017).
Interests: women in science (STEM); gender stereotypes; gender and confidence (self-efficacy); psychology of gender; gender pay gap
This Special Issue will examine empirical and theoretical approaches to research on women’s underrepresentation in male-dominated domains. Papers may focus on the underrepresentation of women in certain high school courses, college majors, or occupations. This underrepresentation may be in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) or non-STEM-related courses (such as woodworking or welding), majors, or occupations (such as law enforcement and the trades). Articles on causes and consequences of females’ underrepresentation are welcome. Submission of manuscripts from a variety of disciplines such as psychology, sociology, economics, political science, and various STEM fields is encouraged.
