Absolutely! Medical schools are accepting more women than men these days, and on the whole they're doing better than the men there, too. Numbers don't lie. Men and women have different approaches to problem-solving and making connections between seemingly unrelated things, and this gives rise to new ideas. We need the best minds possible, but girls are discouraged right from the beginning of their school, taught at home or at school to believe that boys are smarter than girls. Funny thing, if you look at different IQ tests - on the newer timed test boys score higher, but on untimed tests girls score higher (and by a larger degree). Because it's impressed on girls to not be intelligent, many of the promising girls will fade back into the woodwork to "fit in." We need to start at home and from the beginning of school to put more emphasis on intelligence than in physical prowess. Far too much money is going into sports over actual education and research. Overall the U.S. is DROPPING on the list of education in the world, and with DeVos as head of DOE I feel that drop is about to go faster. If we want to stay competitive in a global economy we need to put more into education, especially STEM.
