Women and Scientific Literacy: Building Two-Way Streets

The Women and Scientific Literacy project, which ended in 1999, sought to make science more attractive to women by expanding the content and teaching methods of the science curriculum in higher education, both within traditional science departments and within humanities and social science courses. Made possible by an award from the National Science Foundation and with leadership from AAC&U's Program on the Status and Education of Women, this initiative brought together ten competitively chosen colleges and universities in a three-year curriculum and faculty development project.
