Spatial skills and the gender gap- does it explain fewer women in engineering? Can it be fixed?

Closing the gap must be very helpful for women to do more things better, but I don't think it's a problem to be fixed. Both a man and a woman can perform tasks better by cooperating with each other.

Thanks +Allan Palmer. Too many times we use a measure because it is easy or convenient or available rather than it being designed for the purpose.
There is evidence that measurement of abdominal fat would be a better indication of obesity and thus a waist hip ratio would be better than a BMI for predicting adverse health outcomes.

+Nimish Thakore they did assess intake of fresh fruit, vegetables and red meat and controlled for that. In addition, unlike what I mentioned earlier, they did go back to a sample of the original study population and resurveyed their food habits and found that they were consistent with baseline.
