Why Do So Many Women Who Study Engineering Leave the Field? "We found that men and women had similar reasons for enrolling in engineering. . . Throughout college, men and women succeeded equally in the classroom. However, we observed that women started to doubt their problem-solving abilities more than men. . . For many women engineering students, however, their first encounter with collaboration is to be treated in gender stereotypical ways, mostly by their peers. While some initially described working in teams positively, many more reported negative experiences. When working with male classmates, for example, they often spoke of being relegated to doing routine managerial and secretarial jobs, and of being excluded from the “real” engineering work.

Research shows that class projects and internships reinforce a masculine culture.

Absolutely! A simple, gracious "Thank you" is well placed. So often, people somehow undermine the compliment received, or what they did to deserve it. I believe we honor the compliment-giver when we appreciate their comments.
