Some subscribers to Math-Learn might be interested in "Re:
Professional Role Confidence and Gendered Persistence in Engineering"
[Hake (2011)]. The abstract reads:

************************************************
ABSTRACT: Robert Fuller of the PhysLrnR list referenced an "Inside
Higher Ed" report on "Professional Role Confidence and Gendered
Persistence in Engineering" [Cech et al. (2011)] and asked in his
subject line "How relevant is this to physics?" In my opinion:

a. YES! -Cech et al. (2011)] IS relevant to physics. According to
Berrett (2011) "Cech et al. suggest that the findings about
professional-role confidence may be relevant in other fields in which
women are historically underrepresented, including physical science
and medical specialties such as surgery."

b. A companion piece "Professional Role Confidence and Gendered
Persistence in Physics" could be probably be extracted from the
resources in "Gender Issues in Science/Math Education (GISME)" [Hake
& Mallow (2008) at <http://bit.ly/gXdrvR> (8.5 MB) and
<http://bit.ly/fBTzqV> (4.8 MB)].
