Girls + egalitarian views = better maths scores

Girls do better in maths in societies that have progressive and egalitarian views about the role of women, according to new research. The study highlights the relevance of gender social norms on girls’ education and could contribute to future policy decisions to reduce the ‘maths gender gap’ – and in turn, the gender pay gap. Read my Canary article, “It’s nurture over nature when it comes to the maths gender gap” for more information about this study.
