The manuscript is divided into three parts, (1.0) from 1990 to the present, where I develop models and make 8 measurable predictions, (1.5) from the present to one generation hence, where these are applied using several hundred modalities for culture change where possible and awareness building where not, and finally (2.0) to two generations or more from now where I develop scenarios for what normal gender equity looks like, given that it will not be perfect and expressed very differently in different cultures. This timeline is sandwiched between a top-down approach based on culture and a bottom-up approach based on neuroscience.
If you would like additional details, predictions and measures, a formal proposal or the full manuscript, I am only too happy to oblige.
I attach a 3-page proposal I wrote for a talk at the October 2014 Grace Hopper Celebration. It was rejected. The reviewers wisely and conservatively preferred to receive talks based on published literature. My book is unpublished. It is also unreviewed. This proposal will serve as an introduction, however, to the first third of the book. The conference organizers maintain a strict 70-word limit on abstracts, so, this one may appear somewhat choppy:
1974: My STEM wake-up call comes when Martha opens our Algebra-II textbook to a NASA Mission Control photo and asks "Where are the women?" 2014: coding Short- Term Memory glucose supply models for my STEM and gender book suggests math errors bring momentary sharp pain and math work heats the scalp, without gender effects. With socialization, dress and hair, gender effects kick-in. We can intervene. There’s good news for men too.
I welcome your comments and criticisms on the manuscript which I can send links to for all who are interested.
